Interest rate derivatives (e.g. forwards and futures on fixed income securities, bond options, caps and floors) will also be discussed. In addition to learning the models for pricing a variety of fixed income securities, we will also study some tools that are useful in bond portfolio management, including the construction of discount function, duration and convexity measures for risk management. The course involves a mix of lectures, cases, and computer exercises. Prerequisite: FINC 540 and 542.
