Abstract

Estimates are made of multi-factor versions of the Cox-Ingersoll-Ross model of the term structure of interest rates using the Kalman filter. Estimates are obtained using weekly UK Gilt-edged market data over the period 1982–1997. Empirical results support the need for a multi-factor model and support recent findings of Babbs and Nowman for this market.

Keywords: Cox-Ingersoll-Ross, term structure, interest rates, Kalman filter, UK, gilt market, multi-factor, term structure
