Abstract: We consider a model where the price of an option is driven by a Wiener process and changes randomly at the moments determined by a homogeneous Poisson process. The formula for the minimum variance hedging strategy is obtained for a European type call option. The derivation of the formula is based on the Föllmer-Schweizer decomposition of a contingent claim.
