Hedging instruments discussed include futures contracts, interest rate swaps, exchange traded options, OTC options, and credit derivatives. The text includes calculated examples and readers will learn how to measure and control the interest rate risk and credit risk of a bond portfolio or trading position. They will discover value at risk approaches, valuation, probability distributions, yield volatility, futures, interest rate swaps, exchange traded funds; and find in-depth, up-to-date information on measuring interest rate with derivatives, quantifying the results of positions, and hedging.
