We study a regularization by noise phenomenon for the continuous parabolic Anderson model with a potential shifted along paths of fractional Brownian motion. We demonstrate that provided the Hurst parameter is chosen sufficiently small, this shift allows to establish well-posedness and stability to the corresponding problem – without the need of renormalization – in any dimension. We moreover provide a robustified Feynman-Kac type formula for the unique solution to the regularized problem building upon regularity estimates for the local time of fractional Brownian motion as well as non-linear Young integration.
