This course is fully devoted to the analytics of fixed income securities. As should be expected, quantitative models are particularly useful in this area: fixed-income claims are relatively easy to formulate mathematically. This course is therefore quantitative in nature and will focus on methods of financial analysis appropriate to Nigerian financial markets and institutions. A lot of time will be devoted on quantitative methods for calculating the values of securities. Determination of the risks inherent in fixed income securities and methods for managing that risk, such as hedging and credit derivatives will also be discussed.
