Course Description

This course will show you how to use R in order to create a model that can be used to assess a fixed-interest bond and estimate its yield. This course will also teach you how to protect your bond portfolios from changes in interest rates.

Why value bonds Bonds are issued by corporations and governments and pay interest according to a schedule. They are the most widely used type of fixed-income securities. Unlike stocks, the US fixed income market has 1.5x more transactions than the US stock market. However, bonds and other fixed income instruments trade very little, which is why they are so popular. The price of a bond is not always a good indicator of its worth. When analysing and valuing bonds, analytical techniques are necessary.
