Interest Rate Models

This course gives you an easy introduction to interest rates and related contracts. These include the LIBOR, bonds, forward rate agreements, swaps, interest rate futures, caps, floors, and swaptions. We will learn how to apply the basic tools duration and convexity for managing the interest rate risk of a bond portfolio. We will gain practice in estimating the term structure from market data. We will learn the basic facts from stochastic calculus that will enable you to engineer a large variety of stochastic interest rate models. In this context, we will also review the arbitrage pricing theorem that provides the foundation for pricing financial derivatives. We will also cover the industry standard Black and Bachelier formulas for pricing caps, floors, and swaptions. At the end of this course you will know how to calibrate an interest rate model to market data and how to price interest rate derivatives.

quantitative finance in 5 reviews

Give a clear introduction to quantitative finance but on the other hand, it does not give enough references, link to article to go deeper into subject Difficult but interesting course.

It's rather challenging and requires some prior knowledge of quantitative finance/mathematics (and more time than stated in the syllabus :)).

This is an advanced course for people in quantitative finance field ONLY.

Thank you authors and I'm waiting for the new courses in quantitative finance with the level of sophistication not less than this one.

Great course!

Great course and I learned a lot from it, much more than I initially anticipated.

stochastic calculus in 4 reviews

Not being a financial graduate I found the learning curve very steep but it was very stimulating and enjoyable: the course not only taught me a lot about financial models relating to interest rates but also gave me some entry points into interesting mathematics (measure theory, martingales, stochastic calculus) Very challenging and rewarding course, the treatment of interest rates is of the level of a Master's degree in financial mathematics.

I would advise anyone attempting this course to get at least a little more exposure to stochastic calculus before attempting it even though it already provides a small crash course.

this is complete nonsense they should state it might be easy if you have a ph.d in stochastic calculus.
