Financial Engineering Course: Lecture 5 part 1/2

Hello everyone,
Today, in the first part of Lecture no. 5, we will discuss simple interest rate products, like Forward Rate Agreement or Interest Rate Swap. Although the underlying asset is unknown (and stochastic), I will explain why you can price these products without volatility assumptions. Then, in the following lecture, these instruments will be used to build a yield curve!
In today’s lecture, we will cover the following subjects:
– Simple Compounded Forward Rate
– Forward Rate Agreement
– Floating Rate Note
– Interest Rate Swap
Lecture slides and additional materials you can find in the link in the video’s description.
