Caps, Floors, and Swaptions
From hedging to interest rate model calibration, interest rate caps and swaptions are ubiquitous in the world of fixed-income. As a proxy for market volatility, caps and swaptions influence the analysis of mortgage-backed securities, callable bonds, and cancelable swaps by serving as calibration instruments for interest rate models used to project embedded option value and option-adjusted spread. In this one-hour session, we will take a wide-lensed yet comprehensive view into how caps and swaptions fit into the larger PolyPaths fixed-income workflow, including the following topics:
- Understanding and configuring swaption market data
- The models and available and principles used for swaption valuation
- The role of swaptions in interest rate modeling
- The options available for modeling swaption volatility skew
We will end with a preview of a new feature included in our upcoming 7.10 release – the ability to perform pricing based on a custom volatility surface, either populated by the user or solved based on a basket of callable market indications.
