Fixed Income Securities

This highly quantitative course includes analyzing
risk and return for bonds, mortgage-backed securities, assetbacked
securities and fixed income derivatives - e.g. futures,
options, and swaps. Yield curve analysis emphasizing the relationships
among forward, spot and par curves, and their usage
in fixed income portfolio management, will be emphasized. The course largely takes the view of a fixed income portfolio
manager. However, participants also will have an enhanced understanding how fixed income fits into a corporation's capital
structure and how securitization fits into a financial institution's
funding strategy. Practical applications and the use of
bond analytic software will accompany each topic.
