About this Course

This course focusses on the basic concepts of fixed income analytics. The aim is to explain the concept of yield, and its impact on bond prices under various conditions. The course also explains yield curves, yield and credit spreads and the concept of bond duration.

The main teaching elements in the online portion of this course are:
(1) Explanatory text grouped as simple sentences or bullet points
(2) Images to support the text and show actual market trends
(3) Illustrations from the bond market that connect concepts with market realities. Each element plays an important role and reinforces the others, but since this is an analytical course, the visual content assumes greater importance. Other elements add interest and context to the ideas discussed in the text.

In classroom sessions,

  • Simple topics will be recapped for important points and concepts.
  • Moderately difficult topics will be explained in brief with example(s) and demonstration(s).
  • Difficult topics will be explained in depth with example(s) and demonstration(s) for each concept.

By building an understanding of the concept of bond duration, a learner will be better equipped to analyse the bond price sensitivity of his or her fixed income investments. The learner will also become familiar with movements in the yield curve and changes in spreads. This will enable a better understanding of how policies and events could impact bond markets and investments.
