Unlike most futures contracts, the settlement date is at the beginning of the term of the contract rather than at the end, since the benchmark interest rate is already known until now and the liability can therefore be fixed. The provision that payment must be made sooner rather than later reduces credit risk for both parties. The deadline is the date on which the term of the contract ends. The fra period is usually set according to the date of the contract: the number of months up to the settlement date × number of months until maturity. Example: 1 x 4 FRA (sometimes this rating is used: 1 v 4) means that there is one month between the date of the contract and the billing date and one month between the date of the contract and the expiry of the FRA. Therefore, this FRA has a contractual duration of 3 months. This course gives you an easy introduction to interest rates and related contracts. These include LIBOR, bonds, advance rate agreements, swaps, yields, caps, floors and swaps. We learn how to use the basic tools to manage the interest rate risk of a bond portfolio. We will have the practice of estimating the structure of concepts based on market data. We learn the basic facts of stochastic computing that allows you to develop a variety of stochastic models of interest rates. In this context, we will also review the price of arbitration, which forms the basis for pricing financial derivatives. We will also cover Black and Bachelier industry standards for price caps, soils and swaps.

At the end of this course, you know how to calibrate an interest rate model on market data and how to evaluate interest rate derivatives.
