Abstract:     
This paper proposes to use No-Arbitrage Affine Term Structure Models as prior information on a Vector Autoregression (VAR) of yields. We evaluate the forecasting performance of the proposed approach against alternative models such as an unrestricted VAR and a Random Walk. As a result, we show that using No-Arbitrage restrictions leads to significant improvements in forecasting the yield curve.
