Impact of convexity. A normal shaped price-yield curve, such as the one given below, suggests that a bond’s price may not increase by the same absolute amount when interest rates fall by a certain % as when prices decrease due to an interest rate rise
Duration is a measure of how rapidly the prices of interest sensitive securities change as the rate of interest changes (see application example in the ALM section). For example, if the duration of a security works out to 2 this means that for a 1% increase in interest rates the price of the instrument will decrease by 2%. Similarly, if the interest rates were to decrease by 1% the price of the security would increase by 2%.
