An accessible guide to interest rate modelling for the trade floor
Die Inhaltsangabe kann sich auf eine andere Ausgabe dieses Titels beziehen.
Interest Rate vanilla traders have been using the SABR model for almost a decade. The SABR model is commonly used for vanilla products where the LMM model is commonly used for exotic products; however, this system often causes inconsistencies. Knowledge of the models is essential to all aspiring interest rate quants and traders, as well an understanding of their failings and alternatives.
This book is an accessible guide to interest rate modelling. Rather than covering an array of models which are not very often used in practice, it focuses on the SABR model, the market standard for vanilla products. It also covers the LIBOR market mode, the most commonly used model for exotic products, as well as providing an explanation of the extended SABR LIBOR market model. This book takes a hands-on approach, demonstrating simply how to implement and work with the models in practice. It provides a comprehensive guide to how interest rate modelling is done in practice on the trading floor.

Buchbeschreibung Palgrave Macmillan Sep 2015, 2015. Buch. Buchzustand: Neu. 167x241x23 mm. Neuware - Interest rate traders have been using the SABR model to price vanilla products for more than a decade. However this model suffers however from a severe limitation: its inability to value exotic products. A term structure model à la LIBOR Market Model (LMM) is often employed to value these more complex derivatives, however the LMM is unable to capture the volatility smile. A joint SABR LIBOR Market Model is the natural evolution towards a consistent pricing of vanilla and exotic products. Knowledge of these models is essential to all aspiring interest rate quants, traders and risk managers, as well an understanding of their failings and alternatives. 237 pp. Englisch.
