Price Fixed-Income Instruments

Analyze term structure, interest rates, accrued interest, bond prices, treasury bills, sensitivities, and yields

An interest-rate instrument is a derivative where the underlying asset is the right to pay or receive a notional amount of money at a given interest rate. The Financial Instruments Toolbox™ provides additional functionality to price, compute sensitivity, and perform hedging analysis for many interest-rate securities. You can price bonds, floating-rate notes, vanilla swaps, futures, bond options, amortizing bonds, caps, and floors with pricing models that include lattice models, Monte Carlo simulations, and multiple closed-form solutions. For more information, see Price Interest-Rate Instruments (Financial Instruments Toolbox).
