A market model for pricing inflation indexed bonds with jumps incorporation

Güney, İbrahim Ethem
Protection against inflation is an essential part of the today's financial markets, particularly in high-inflation economies. Hence, nowadays inflation indexed instruments are being increasingly popular in the world financial markets. In this thesis, we focus on pricing of the inflation-indexed bonds which are the unique inflation-indexed instruments traded in the Turkish bond market. Firstly, we review the Jarrow-Yildirim model which deals with pricing of the inflation-indexed instruments within the HJM framework. Then, we propose a pricing model that is an extension of the Jarrow-Yildirim model. The model allows instantaneous forward rates, inflation index and bond prices to be driven by both a standard Brownian motion and a finite number of Poisson processes. A closed-form pricing formula for an European call option on the inflation index is also derived.


Pricing inflation indexed swaps using an extended hjm framework with jump process
Karahan, Ceren; Hayfavi, Azize; Department of Financial Mathematics (2010)
Inflation indexed instruments are designed to help protect investors against the changes in the general level of prices. So, they are frequently preferred by investors and they have become increasingly developing part of the market. In this study, firstly, the HJM model and foreign currency analogy used to price of inflation indexed instruments are investigated. Then, the HJM model is extended with finite number of Poisson process. Finally, under the extended HJM model, a pricing derivation of inflation ind...
The volatility spillover among a country’s foreign exchange, bond, and stock markets: a multivariate garch analysis
Kubilay, Mustafa Murat; Danışoğlu, Seza; Department of Financial Mathematics (2012)
The purpose of this study is to examine the volatility spillover among a country’s foreign exchange, bond and stock markets and the volatility transmission from the global bond, stock and commodity markets to these local financial markets. The sample for the study includes data from both emerging and developed economies in the time period between 2004 and 2011. A multivariate GARCH methodology with the BEKK representation is applied for the local financial markets and global variables are included as exogen...
Statistical methods in credit rating
Sezgin, Özge; Yıldırak, Şahap Kasırga; Department of Financial Mathematics (2006)
Credit risk is one of the major risks banks and financial institutions are faced with. With the New Basel Capital Accord, banks and financial institutions have the opportunity to improve their risk management process by using Internal Rating Based (IRB) approach. In this thesis, we focused on the internal credit rating process. First, a short overview of credit scoring techniques and validation techniques was given. By using real data set obtained from a Turkish bank about manufacturing firms, default predi...
Pricing inflation-indexed swaps and swaptions using an hjm model
Temiz, Zeynep Canan; Hayfavi, Azize; Department of Financial Mathematics (2009)
Inflation-indexed instruments provide a real return and protect investors from the erosion of the purchasing power of money. Hence, inflation-indexed markets grow very fast day by day. In this thesis, we focus on pricing of the inflation-indexed swaps and swaptions which are the most liquid derivative products traded in the inflation-indexed markets. Firstly, we review the Hull-White extended Vasicek model in the HJM framework. Then, we use this model to price inflation-indexed swaps. Also, pricing of infla...
Comparative study of risk measures
Ekşi, Zehra; Körezlioğlu, Hayri; Department of Financial Mathematics (2005)
There is a little doubt that, for a decade, risk measurement has become one of the most important topics in finance. Indeed, it is natural to observe such a development, since in the last ten years, huge amounts of financial transactions ended with severe losses due to severe convulsions in financial markets. Value at risk, as the most widely used risk measure, fails to quantify the risk of a position accurately in many situations. For this reason a number of consistent risk measures have been introduced in...
