Example text

It is a measure of the rate at which commercial banks can borrow in the inter-bank market. As a result, derivative pricing requires a discount curve which is linked to the level of the current and expected future level of the Libor index. 2 THE LIBOR INDEX Within the derivatives market Libor is the benchmark interest rate reference index for a number of major currencies including the US dollar and the British pound. Libor stands for the London Inter Bank Offered Rate and is the interest rate at which large commercial banks with a credit rating of AA and above offer to lend in the inter-bank market.

H(ts ) = H(0), then its interest rate sensitivity must be computed by bumping the swap rates, rebuilding the Libor curve, and then repricing the swap. This requires us to have a methodology for building the Libor discount curve and this is the subject of the next section. 7 21 BOOTSTRAPPING THE LIBOR CURVE So far, we have introduced and analysed the pricing of money-market deposits, forward rate agreements, interest rate futures and interest rate swaps. We have shown that their pricing is directly linked to the shape of the forward Libor discount curve at today time 0 which is given by Z(0, T ).

Eventually the onedimensional root solver will find a value of Z(0, tk ) and we insert both tk and Z(0, tk ) into our vector of times and discount factors. We repeat this for each swap. 1. Although the four deposit rates shown were available, we actually only used the O/N, T/N, 1W and 1M rates. Our reason for not using longer maturity deposits is that the short end of the interest rate futures market is generally considered to be much more liquid than the money-market deposits. For the purpose of converting the futures into FRAs in order to use them to build the curve, we computed the futures–FRA convexity correction using a basis point volatility of 60 bp, implying that a 60 bp movement in interest rates over one year is a one standard deviation move.
