Fixed Income Mathematics Course Description
First, we will talk about the materials and then we will share some information that is crucial for you to know before you do this Fixed income mathematics course.
- Introduction: In the beginning, you will learn the two most important elements of this Fixed income mathematics course. Understanding the computation won’t make sense until you learn these. First, you will learn the foundations of what fixed income is. Then you will learn about the fixed income market and how it works.
- Types of bonds: The course is designed in such a way that you wouldn’t miss out on a single thing on a fixed income. In this segment, you will learn about the type of bonds. You will also learn about various types of yield and returns. The earlier section and this one are important for creating a familiarity with the subject.
- Money Market and Price Relationship: In this segment, you will learn three fundamental concepts of fixed income mathematics. First, you will learn about the money market and how it works. Second, you will get to know about the certificate of deposits. Third, you will learn the relationship between yield and price. These are concepts you must know before you ever learn the computation.
- Formula Convexity: The purpose of understanding convexity is to understand a better measure of price sensitivity for bonds. This segment will teach you about convexity. This section will also teach you how you can calculate convexity using formula.
- Cash Flow of a Bond: This segment will take you toward the computation phase of this Fixed income mathematics course. You will learn a lot of complex calculations here. So, pay special attention to this section. Firstly, you will learn about convexity and DVO 1 of the bond. Then the instructor will take you through the M duration and PVO 1 of the bond. Then you will learn how to calculate the cash flow of a bond. You will then understand about XIRR Input Value. After all these theories and concepts, now the instructor will show you examples of how to find out the cash flow of bonds. Finally, you will learn about the day count convention in this segment.
- Discounted Instrument Pricing: In this segment, you would learn a lot about discounted instrument pricing. First, the instructor will take you through zero-coupon instruments. Then you will learn about discounted instruments. And then you will see an example of discounted yield and yield return. Then you will get to understand accrued interest and purchase price and these will be followed by a detailed example of discounted pricing. Finally, the instructor will take you through an example of a trade output space.
- Rate of Returns: This is one of the most important segments of the entire course because investors are most interested in the rate of returns. In this section, you will learn about accrued interest and how to compute. You will also get to know what yield to maturity is and how to use the formula of price. Then the instruction will show you what discounted instruments are. After discounted instruments, it’s time to learn the internal rate of return (one of the most important portions) and also a modified internal rate of return.
- Term Structure of Interest Rates: This is the last segment of this Fixed income mathematics course. In this section, you will learn the two most important things. First, the instructor will take you through the structure of the interest rate. And then you will learn the structure of the spot rate. Finally, you will get to understand a comparative analysis between zero-coupon rates and yield to maturity. This Fixed income mathematics course is the only course that not only teaches you theories and fundamentals, but it also shows you how you can apply them in practical examples.
