2 Chapter 3 Fixed Income Securities FixedIncome Markets Definition: Fixedincome securities are financial claims with promised cash flows of fixed amount paid at fixed dates. Classification of FixedIncome Securities: 1. Treasury Securities: U.S. Treasury securities (bills, notes, bonds). Bunds, JGBs, U.K. Gilts Federal Agency Securities: Securities issued by federal agencies (FHLB, FNMA...). 3. Corporate Securities: Commercial paper. Mediumterm notes (MTNs). Corporate bonds Municipal Securities. 5. MortgageBacked Securities Fall 2006 c J. Wang Lecture Notes

6 Chapter 3 Fixed Income Securities Term Structure of Interest Rates Our objective here is to value riskless cash flows. Given the rich set of fixedincome securities traded in the market, their prices provide the information needed to value riskless cash flows at hand. In the market, this information on the time value of money is given in several different forms: 1. Spot interest rates. 2. Prices of discount bonds (e.g., zerocoupon bonds and STRIPS). 3. Prices of coupon bonds. 4. Forward interest rates. Fall 2006 c J. Wang Lecture Notes
7 36 Fixed Income Securities Chapter Spot Interest Rates Definition: Spot interest rate, r t, is the (annualized) interest rate for maturity date t. r t is for payments only on date t. r t is the average rate of interest between now and date t. r t is different for each different date t. Example. On , the spot interest rates are: Maturity (year) 1/4 1/ Interest Rate (%) Definition: The set of spot interest rates for different maturities {r 1,r 2,...,r t,...} gives the term structure of (spot) interest rates, which refers to the relation between spot rates and their maturities. 6 Term Structure of Interest Rates interest rate (%) maturity (years) (WSJ) Lecture Notes c J.

9 38 Fixed Income Securities Chapter Discount Bonds Discount bonds (zero coupon bonds) are the simplest fixedincome securities. Definition: A discount bond with maturity date t is a bond which pays $1 only at t. Example. STRIPS are traded at the following prices: Maturity (year) 1/4 1/ Price For the 5year STRIPS, we have = 1 (1 + r 5 ) 5 r 5 = 1 1=4.64%. (0.797) 1/5 Let B t denote the current price (at date 0) of a discount bond maturing at t. Then B t = 1 or r (1+r t ) t t = 1 B 1/t t 1. Prices of discount bonds provide information about spot interest rates and vise versa Lecture Notes c J. Wang Fall 2006
10 Chapter 3 Fixed Income Securities Coupon Bonds A coupon bond pays a stream of regular coupon payments and a principal at maturity. Observation: A coupon bond is a portfolio of discount bonds. Example. A 3year bond of $1,000 par and 5% annual coupon , 000 t = time = 50 (50 1year STRIPS) t = time + 50 (50 2year STRIPS) t = time ( year STRIPS) t = time Fall 2006 c J. Wang Lecture Notes
11 310 Fixed Income Securities Chapter 3 Suppose that the discount bond prices are as follows t B t What should the price of the coupon bond be? Price = (50)(0.952) + (50)(0.898) + (1050)(0.863) = What if not? Thus, a bond with coupon payments {C 1,C 2,...,C T } and a principal P at maturity T is composed of C t units of discount bonds maturing at t, t =1,...,T P units of discount bond maturing at T. The price of a coupon bond must be B = T (C t B t ) + (P B T ) t=1 = C 1 1+r C T 1 (1+r T 1 ) T 1 + C T +P (1+r T ) T Lecture Notes c J. Wang Fall 2006

YearstoMaturity 1 2 Face Value 1, ,000.0 Coupon Rate (%) Current Price (a) Price of a 1year bond: = B 1 ( ) B 1 = =0.95 r 1 = 5.26%. (b) Price of a 2year bond: 1048 = (80)(0.95) + B B 2 = =0.90 r 2 = 5.41%. How to replicate 1 and 2year discount bonds from coupon bonds? Fall 2006 c J. Wang Lecture Notes
13 312 Fixed Income Securities Chapter YieldtoMaturity (YTM) Definition: Yieldtomaturity of a bond, denoted by y, is given by B = T t=1 C t (1+y) t + P (1+y) T. Given its maturity, the principle and the coupon rate, there is a one to one mapping between the price of a bond and its YTM. In the market, it is conventional to quote bond prices in YTM. Example. Current 1 and 2year spot interest rates are 5% and 6%, respectively. The price of a 2year Treasury coupon bond with par value of $100 and a coupon rate of 6% is B = ( ) 2 = Its YTM is %: = ( ) 2. Note the difference between YTM definition and bond pricing formula Lecture Notes c J. Wang Fall 2006
14 Chapter 3 Fixed Income Securities Forward Interest Rates So far, we have focused on spot interest rates: transaction between today, 0, and a future date, t. rates for a Now, we study forward interest rates: rates for a transaction between two future dates, for instance, t 1 and t 2. For a forward transaction to borrow money in the future: Terms of the transaction are agreed on today, t =0. Loan is received on a future date t 1. Repayment of the loan occurs on date t 2. Note: Future spot rates can be different from current corresponding forward rates. Fall 2006 c J. Wang Lecture Notes
15 314 Fixed Income Securities Chapter 3 Example. As the CFO of a U.S. multinational, you expect to repatriate $10 M from a foreign subsidiary in 1 year, which will be used to pay dividends 1 year later. Not knowing the interest rates in 1 year, you would like to lock into a lending rate one year from now for a period of one year. What should you do? The current interest rates are time to maturity t (years) 1 2 spot interest rater t Strategy: 1. Borrow $9.524 M now for one year at 5% 2. Invest the proceeds $9.524 M for two years at 7%. Outcome (in million dollars): Year yr borrowing yr lending Repatriation Net The lockedin 1year lending rate 1 year from now is 9.04%, which is the forward rate for year Lecture Notes c J. Wang Fall 2006
16 Chapter 3 Fixed Income Securities 315 Definition: The forward interest rate between time t 1 and t is (1 + r t ) t =(1+r t 1 ) t 1 (1 + f t ) or f t = B t 1 1= (1 + r t) t 1. B t (1 + r t 1 ) t 1 Spot and forward rates r 1 r 1 = f 1 r 2 r 4 r 3 f 2 f 3 f 4 f year Example. Suppose that discount bond prices are as follows: t B t YTM t A customer wants a forward contract to borrow $20 M three years from now for one year. Can you (a bank) quote a rate? f 4 =8.51%. Fall 2006 c J. Wang Lecture Notes
17 316 Fixed Income Securities Chapter 3 What should you do today to lockin these cash flows? Strategy: 1. Buy 20,000,000 of 3 year discount bonds, costing (20, 000, 000)(0.8278) = $16, 556, Finance this by selling 4 year discount bonds of amount 16, 556, 000/ = $21, 701, This creates a liability in year 4 in the amount $21,701,403. Cash flows from this strategy (in million dollars): Year Purchase of year bonds Sale of year bonds Total The yield to maturity for the bond is given by: 21, 701, , 000, 000 1=8.51% Lecture Notes c J. Wang Fall 2006
18 Chapter 3 Fixed Income Securities Hypothesis on Interest Rates What determines the term structure of interest rates? 1. Expected future spot rates. 2. Risk of long bonds. Expectations Hypothesis: rates, f t = E [r 1 (t)]. Forward rates predict future spot Implications: The slope of the term structure reflects the market s expectations of future shortterm interest rates. Liquidity Preference Hypothesis: Investors regard long bonds as riskier than short bonds. Implications: Long bonds on average receive higher returns than short bonds. Forward rate on average overpredict future shortterm rates. Term structure reflects (a) expectations of future interest rates, and (b) risk premium demanded by investors in long bonds. Fall 2006 c J.

23 322 Fixed Income Securities Chapter Measures of Interest Rate Risk Assume flat term structure at r t = y. Duration and Modified Duration A bond s interest rate risk can be measured by its relative price change with respect to a change in yield. MD = 1 B ΔB Δy. This is called a bond s modified duration or volatility. The term modified duration comes from its link to duration: Definition: A bond s duration is the weighted average of the maturity of individual cash flows, with the weights being proportional to their present values: D = T t=1 PV(CF t ) B t = 1 B T t=1 CF t (1+y) t t. Duration measures the average time taken by a bond, on a discounted basis, to pay back the original investment. Duration and MD satisfy the following relation: MD = D 1+y Lecture Notes c J. Wang Fall 2006
24 Chapter 3 Fixed Income Securities 323 Example. Consider a 4year Tnote with face value $100 and 7% coupon, selling at $103.50, yielding 6%. For Tnotes, coupons are paid semiannually. Using 6month intervals, the coupon rate is 3.5% and the yield is 3%. t CF PV(CF ) t PV(CF ) Duration (in 1/2 year units) is D = (738.28)/ = Modified duration (volatility) is MD = D/(1 + y) =7.13/1.03 = If the semiannual yield moves up by 0.1%, the bond price decreases roughly by 0.692%. Fall 2006 c J. Wang Lecture Notes
25 324 Fixed Income Securities Chapter 3 Convexity Example. (Continued.) 4year Tnote with 7% coupon and 6% flat yield curve. Duration is D =7.13. Volatility is MD =6.92. As the yield changes, the bond price also changes: Yield Price Using MD Difference For small yield changes, pricing by MD is accurate. For large yield changes, pricing by MD is inaccurate Lecture Notes c J. Wang Fall 2006
26 Chapter 3 Fixed Income Securities 325 Price (in log) Duration gives the slope Convexity gives curvature 3.0 yield (%) Bond price is not a linear function of the yield. For large yield changes, the effect of curvature (i.e., nonlinearity) becomes important. Approximate price change: (ΔB) = ΔB Δy (Δy)+1 Δ 2 B 2 Δy 2 (Δy)2 + MD (Δy)+CX (Δy) 2 where convexity, CX, measures the curvature of the bond price (per $) as a function of the yield: CX = B Δ 2 B Δy 2. Fall 2006 c J. Wang Lecture Notes
27 326 Fixed Income Securities Chapter Managing Interest Rate Risks Given a fixedincome position, we can take another fixedincome position to offset the interest rate risk of the original position. Thus, the interest rate risk of the total position (the portfolio) is reduced. Such a strategy is called hedging. Assume a flat term structure. Consider a bond portfolio consisting of n A units of bond A and n B units of bond B, and The value of the portfolio is Bond Price Duration Volatility A B A D A MD A B B B D B MD B V P = V A + V B = n A B A + n B B B. When interest rates change, ΔV P = ΔV A +ΔV B = n A ΔB A + n B ΔB B = (V A MD A + V B MD B )(Δy). Thus, MD P = V A V A + V B MD A + V B V A + V B MD B Lecture Notes c J. Wang Fall 2006
28 Chapter 3 Fixed Income Securities 327 Example. Suppose that you are long in 4year bonds and you want to use 3year bonds to hedge the interest rate risk. The data on these bonds are Bond Yield Duration Volatility (%) 3year year To hedge the long position in 4year bond, we need to sell 3year bond. How much to sell? For each dollar worth of 4year bond, short δ dollars worth of 3year bond such that the total portfolio has zero volatility: MD 4 + δ MD 3 =0. δ is called the hedge ratio. Thus hedge ratio = MD 4 MD 3 = =1.28. For the hedged portfolio, we have Position Value change when yields 0.1% Long $ year bond (1000)(3.20)(0.001) = 3.20 Short $ year bond (1280)(2.50)(0.001) = Net 0 Fall 2006 c J. Wang Lecture Notes
29 328 Fixed Income Securities Chapter 3 5 Inflation Risk Most bonds give nominal payoffs. In the presence of inflation risk, real payoffs are risky even when nominal payoffs are safe. Example. Suppose that inflation next year is uncertain ex ante, with equally possible rate of 10%, 8% and 6%. The real interest rate is 2%. The 1year nominal interest rate will be (roughly) 10%. Consider the return from investing in a 1year Treasury security: Year 0 value Inflation rate (%) Year 1 nom. payoff Year 1 real payoff Lecture Notes c J. Wang Fall 2006
30 Chapter 3 Fixed Income Securities Credit Risk and Corporate Bonds Fixedincome securities have promised payoffs of fixed amount at fixed times. Excluding government bonds, other fixedincome securities, such as corporate bonds, carry the risk of failing to pay off as promised. Definition: Default risk (credit risk) refers to the risk that a debt issuer fails to make the promised payments (interest or principal). Bond ratings by rating agencies (e.g., Moody s and S&P) provide indications of the likelihood of default by each issuer. Description Moody s S&P Giltedge Aaa AAA Very high grade Aa AA Upper medium grade A A Lower medium grade Baa BBB Low grade Ba BB Investment grade bonds: Aaa Baa by Moody s or AAA BBB by S&P. Speculative (junk) bonds: Ba and below by Moody s or BB and below by S&P. Fall 2006 c J. Wang Lecture Notes
31 330 Fixed Income Securities Chapter 3 Default Premium and Risk Premium Example. Suppose all bonds have par value $1,000 and 10year Treasury strip is selling at $463.19, yielding 8% 10year zero issued by XYZ Inc. is selling at $ Expected payoff from XYZ s 10year zero is $ For the 10year zero issued by XYZ: Promised YTM = Expected YTM = ( ) /10 1 = 12% ( ) /10 1=9% and Default Premium = Promised YTM Expected YTM = 12% 9% = 3% Risk Premium = Expected YTM Defaultfree YTM = 9% 8% = 1%. Promised YTM is the yield if default does not occur. Expected YTM is the probabilityweighted average of all possible yields. Default premium is the difference between promised yield and expected yield. Bond risk premium is the difference between the expected yield on a risky bond and the yield on a riskfree bond of similar maturity and coupon rate Lecture Notes c J. Wang Fall 2006
