Abstract. This research is aimed at finding closed-form solutions of the utility maximization problem that solves an infinitely-lived rational consumer when the risky asset is driven by a time-inhomogeneous Markov modulated diffusion process. We provide analytical solutions for two specific cases: transition probabilities with tendency and transition probabilities with no tendency and no periodicity.
