This book includes information on measuring yield curve risk, swaps and exchange-traded options, TC options and related products, and describes how to measure and control the interest rate of risk of a bond portfolio or trading position.

Measuring and Controlling Interest Rate and Credit Risk is a systematic evaluation of how to measure and control the interest rate risk and credit risk of a bond portfolio or trading position, defining key points in the process of risk management as related to financial situations.
