In response to intense competition and higher market volatility, players in the fixed-income market now demand increasingly sophisticated valuation tools. Until recently, a basic understanding of duration and convexity or the ability to use simple, one-factor term structure models was enough to distinguish one from the crowd. Now, this knowledge is practically de rigueur. Cutting-edge players today need a deep understanding of how convexity and risk premia affect bond yields and returns; of how multi-factor term structure models can improve hedging performance; and of how to improve the accuracy and efficiency of Monte Carlo analysis, etc. This book brings together contributions from twenty-four finance professionals and academics from top investment banks, consulting firms, and universities. Going well beyond the basics, Advanced Fixed-Income Valuation Tools brings the reader some of the most advanced thinking in the field. Topics covered in this book include:
• The effects of convexity and risk premia on bond yields, forward and future rates, and expected returns
• The similarities and differences among term structure models
• Multi-factor models and models with jumps
• Modeling credit risk
• Prepayment modeling and MBS pricing
• The Muni-Treasury spread
• Foreign currency options
• Efficient numerical valuation techniques
Advanced Fixed-Income Valuation Tools arms the reader with the knowledge and tools needed to succeed in the competitive and rapidly evolving field of quantitative fixed-income investing and trading.
