Bond Price and Impulse Response Function for the Balduzzi, Das, Foresi and Sundaram (1996) Model
16 Pages Posted: 14 Apr 2005
In this paper, we analyse the Affine Term Structure Model (ATSM) proposed by Balduzzi, Das, Foresi and Sundaram (BDFS, 1996) and provide the closed-form expression of the bond price. In addition, we extend the notion of Impulse Response Function to the class of ATSM. We show that it is closely related to the duration measure, and we compute it explicitly in the BDFS model.
