Dynamic mean-variance investment model can not be solved by dynamic programming directly due to the nonseparable structure of variance minimization problem. Instead of adopting embedding scheme, Lagrangian duality approach or mean-variance hedging approach, we transfer the model into mean field mean-variance formulation and derive the explicit pre-committed optimal mean-variance policy in a jump diffusion market. Similar to multi-period setting, the pre-committed optimal mean-variance policy is not time consistent in efficiency. When the wealth level of the investor exceeds some pre-given level, following pre-committed optimal mean-variance policy leads to irrational investment behaviors. Thus, we propose a semi-self-financing revised policy, in which the investor is allowed to withdraw partial of his wealth out of the market. And show the revised policy has a better investment performance in the sense of achieving the same mean-variance pair as pre-committed policy and receiving a nonnegative free cash flow stream.
