Based on the author's own extensive experience as a financial engineer, trainer and consultant, Swaps and Other Derivatives provides a detailed and practical approach to the pricing of a wide range of swap structures, including non-generic interest rate and cross currency swaps such as forward starts, amortizers and roller coasters, yield curve, basis, OISs, diffs and quanto diffs, credit swaps and credit-adjusted pricing, equity and commodity, inflation-linked and volatility swaps. The applications of swaps in techniques such as asset packaging and pricing and hedging of LTFX are also discussed in detail. The book also covers interest rate and FX options, concentrating particularly on the construction and pricing of hybrid structures such as swaps with embedded options, but also covers practical issues such as the estimation of a forward volatility curve and swaption volatilities from par cap volatilities.
Traditional and advanced risk management techniques for the control of portfolios, such as the construction of robust hedging portfolios using mathematical programming, delta and gamma neutrality, and minimum Value-at-Risk, are also described and demonstrated in practical detail. Alternative methods for the estimation of the VaR of a complex option portfolio are discussed, including the use of techniques such as delta-gamma, extreme value theory and Monte-Carlo sampling strategies.
"Richard Flavell has a long association with the swap market from an academic and practitioner's point of view. Swaps and Other Derivatives is a compendium of practical information on the valuation, pricing, trading and structuring of swaps. It will fulfill an important role as a reference source for the market." Satyajit Das
Swaps and Other Derivatives is designed for financial professionals to understand, and ultimately to do themselves, how the vast bulk of OTC derivatives are used, structured, priced and hedged. Adopting a practical flavour throughout, the book describes how the pricing, valuation and risk management of generic OTC derivatives may be performed, in sufficient detail and with various alternatives, so that the approaches may be applied in practice. The book is supported by a full range of detailed spreadsheet models, which underpin all the tables, graphs and figures in the main text.
Swaps and Other Derivatives is ideal for risk managers, traders, financial engineers, product controllers and other professionals involved in the construction and management of OTC derivatives. In addition, it should be of interest to those involved in internal audit, risk control and IT within financial institutions. End users such as fund managers and corporate treasurers who use derivatives to manager their risk profiles should also find it of value.
