I will discuss the optimal behavior of a population of fund managers who trade, in a common horizon [0,T] and log-normal markets, aiming at maximizing their expected utility but are also concerned about their relative performance. I will present the n-agent and mean field game for both CARA and CRRA risk preferences, construct the equilibria explicitly and provide conditions for their existence and uniqueness. (Joint work with D. Lacker)
