Running Head: Calculate Convexity 3-2 Assignment Using an Excel spreadsheet, calculate the convexity for the two bonds you selected for the Module Two Assignment. Conduct an analysis of their duration and convexity and expound on the difference between the two concepts. Since I did not choose two bonds in Module Two Assignment, I considered the following bonds:

The convexity which was associated with this bond was set at 93.21. There is a formula which is used in the calculation of the duration and the convexity of the bond. The duration (D) and the convexity(C) are methods which are used in the measurement of risks of interest rates changes (β). In the formulae, there are other variables which have to be included

As time progresses, stock prices and yields fluctuate and in most cases, this fluctuation was not foreseen. Due to this reason, investors usually select a specified period to measure the performance of securities, which is significant identifying the level of risk associated with their performance. Convexity is a measure of the

Our investigation also determines if the yield spread represents an arbitrage opportunity. In our investigation, we calculate the theoretical yield spread between the two bonds and compare the figure with the observed yield spread. It is cited in the case that the observed yield spread could be due to different liquidity premium for each bond or simply due to different

In an effort to account for this fluctuating bond price, an investor can assess the risk by looking at duration and convexity of a bond. Here, duration of a bond simply is the weighted average time until the investor receives the cash flows on the bond, and it provides a linear estimate of price changes. This is calculated by multiplying the proportion of net present value

Assuming imperfect capital markets, hedging theory suggests the following policies to maximise the market value of equity: Assuming no transaction costs, a constant volume of positive NPV projects and that cash flows are used to calculate taxes as well as costs of financial distress, the value-maximising strategy would be to minimise the volatility of cash flows. The different benefits of hedging would not be mutually exclusive. Thus, the total benefits of hedging would be the sum

Proof of convexity: The area below a concave function forms a convex set (Theorem 3 1 Mathematical Appendix A1.13). Alternatively, from the deﬁnition of convexity the following inequality should hold 4 − (tx1 + (1 − t)x2 )2 ≥ t(4 − (x1 )2 ) + (1 − t)(4 − (x2 )2 ). Multiply out to get 4 − (tx1 + x2 − tx2 )2 ≥ 4 − x2 + t[(x1 )2 − (x2
