This two-day course reviews essential concepts, including nominal vs. real rates and breakeven inflation, and looks at the operation of the index-linked bond market. Case studies provide a practical understanding of cash flows and pricing of the markets.
We address risk management of inflation-linked bonds and seasonality in the underlying consumer price indices. We also explain the operation of inflation derivatives and derivative structures.
