Description

Dynamic methods for interest rate risk pricing and hedging.

Fixed-Income Securities provides a survey of modern methods forpricing and hedging fixed-income securities in the presence ofinterest rate risk. Modern theory of finance provides a wealth ofnew approaches to the important question of interest rate riskmanagement, and this book brings them together, in a comprehensiveand thorough treatment of the subject.

Structured in an accessible manner, the authors begin by focusingon pricing and hedging certain cash flows, before moving on toconsider pricing and hedging uncertain cash flows. In addition tothe theoretical explanation, the authors provide numerousreal-world examples and applications throughout.

This is the first book I have seen to carefully cover such a wideset of topics in both theoretical and applied fixed-incomemodelling, ranging from the use of market information to obtainyield curves, to the pricing and hedging of bonds and fixed-incomederivatives, to the currently active topic of defaultableyield-curve modelling. It will be particularly useful topractitioners.Darrell Duffie, Stanford University

This is the most comprehensive theoretical treatment of thesubject I ve ever seen. Mark Rubinstein, Haas School of Business,University of California

An excellent review of interest rate models and of the pricing andhedging principles in the fixed-income area.Oldrich Alfons Vasicek,KMV Corporation
