Typical CD is for 1-3 months with \$1,000. You pay 5% on these CDs. A local business needs a \$1M loan for 1 yr. The business is ready to pay 7% annually. What are your major sources of risk? How you can measure and manage it? Zvi Wiener Fabozzi Ch 4

Taylor Expansion To measure the price response to a small change in risk factor we use the Taylor expansion. Initial value y0, new value y1, change y: Zvi Wiener Fabozzi Ch 4

Property 1 Prices of option-free bonds move in OPPOSITE direction from the change in yield. The price change (in %) is NOT the same for different bonds. Zvi Wiener Fabozzi Ch 4

Property 2 For a given bond a small increase or decrease in yield leads very similar (but opposite) changes in prices. What does this means mathematically? Zvi Wiener Fabozzi Ch 4

Property 3 For a given bond a large increase or decrease in yield leads to different (and opposite) changes in prices. What does this means mathematically? Zvi Wiener Fabozzi Ch 4

Property 4 For a given bond a large change in yield the percentage price increase is greater than the percentage decrease. What does this means mathematically? Zvi Wiener Fabozzi Ch 4

What affects price volatility?
Linkage Credit considerations Time to maturity Coupon rate Zvi Wiener Fabozzi Ch 4

Bond Price Volatility Consider only IR as a risk factor
Longer TTM means higher volatility Lower coupons means higher volatility Floaters have a very low price volatility Price is also affected by coupon payments Price value of a Basis Point (PVBP)= price change resulting from a change of 0.01% in the yield. Zvi Wiener Fabozzi Ch 4

Duration and IR sensitivity
Zvi Wiener Fabozzi Ch 4

Duration F. Macaulay (1938) Better measurement than time to maturity.
Weighted average of all coupons with the corresponding time to payment. Bond Price = Sum[ CFt/(1+y)t ] suggested weight of each coupon: wt = CFt/(1+y)t /Bond Price What is the sum of all wt? Zvi Wiener Fabozzi Ch 4

Duration The bond price volatility is proportional to the bond’s duration. Thus duration is a natural measure of interest rate risk exposure. Zvi Wiener Fabozzi Ch 4

Modified Duration The percentage change in bond price is the product of modified duration and the change in the bond’s yield to maturity. Zvi Wiener Fabozzi Ch 4

Macaulay Duration Definition of duration, assuming t=0. Zvi Wiener

Macaulay Duration A weighted sum of times to maturities of each coupon. What is the duration of a zero coupon bond? Zvi Wiener Fabozzi Ch 4

Comparison of two bonds
Coupon bond with duration Price (at 5% for 6m.) is \$ If IR increase by 1bp (to 5.01%), its price will fall to \$ , or 0.359% decline. Zero-coupon bond with equal duration must have years to maturity. At 5% semiannual its price is (\$1,000/ )=\$ If IR increase to 5.01%, the price becomes: (\$1,000/ )=\$831.66 0.359% decline. Zvi Wiener Fabozzi Ch 4

Duration D Zero coupon bond 15% coupon, YTM = 15% Maturity
0 3m 6m 1yr 3yr 5yr 10yr 30yr Zvi Wiener Fabozzi Ch 4

Example A bond with 30-yr to maturity Coupon 8%; paid semiannually
YTM = 9% P0 = \$897.26 D = Yrs if YTM = 9.1%, what will be the price? P/P = - y D* P = -(y D*)P = -\$9.36 P = \$ \$9.36 = \$887.90 Zvi Wiener Fabozzi Ch 4

What Determines Duration?
Duration of a zero-coupon bond equals maturity. Holding ttm constant, duration is higher when coupons are lower. Holding other factors constant, duration is higher when ytm is lower. Duration of a perpetuity is (1+y)/y. Zvi Wiener Fabozzi Ch 4

What Determines Duration?
Holding the coupon rate constant, duration not always increases with ttm. Zvi Wiener Fabozzi Ch 4

Convexity r \$ Zvi Wiener Fabozzi Ch 4

Example 10 year zero coupon bond with a semiannual yield of 6%
The duration is 10 years, the modified duration is: The convexity is Zvi Wiener Fabozzi Ch 4

Understanding of Duration/Convexity
What happens with duration when a coupon is paid? How does convexity of a callable bond depend on interest rate? How does convexity of a puttable bond depend on interest rate? Zvi Wiener Fabozzi Ch 4

Callable bond The buyer of a callable bond has written an option to the issuer to call the bond back. Rationally this should be done when … Interest rate fall and the debt issuer can refinance at a lower rate. Zvi Wiener Fabozzi Ch 4

Puttable bond The buyer of a such a bond can request the loan to be returned. The rational strategy is to exercise this option when interest rates are high enough to provide an interesting alternative. Zvi Wiener Fabozzi Ch 4

FRM-97, Question 24 Which of the following is NOT a property of bond duration? A. For zero-coupon bonds Macaulay duration of the bond equals to time to maturity. B. Duration is usually inversely related to the coupon of a bond. C. Duration is usually higher for higher yields to maturity. D. Duration is higher as the number of years to maturity for a bond selling at par or above increases. Zvi Wiener Fabozzi Ch 4

FRM-99, Question 75 You have a large short position in two bonds with similar credit risk. Bond A is priced at par yielding 6% with 20 years to maturity.
