Here is the first course on pricing interest rate swaps and cross currency swaps divided into three separate sections that address basics of interest rate swaps, term structure modeling, boot strapping zero and forward curves and mark to market and valuation.
We close the session with a short two step case study that walk through the process of building the forward curve and completing a MTM exercise for a Swap using a live example presented as a test question.
A short review of the pricing process and swap terminology. Feel free to skip if you are already comfortable with the language.
Plot zero and forward curve using the bootstrapping process in Excel. A step by step guide to building your Excel spreadsheet.
Extending the material covered in section II above. Review MTM & Valuation.
A detailed case study that walks through the topics covered in prior sections using a detailed step by step case study. The case study is a sample exam used for assessment in the derivative pricing course taught by yours truly at EMBA and MBA programs in Singapore.
