Sample text

Debt issued with a maturity of less than 1 year is con­ sidered to be money market debt. There are many different types of bonds that can be issued. The most common bond is the conven­ tional (or plain vanilla or bullet) bond. This is a bond paying a regular (annual or semiannual) fixed interest rate over a fixed period to maturity or redemption, with the return of principal (the par or nominal value of the bond) on the maturity date. All other bonds will be variations on this. There is a wide range of parties involved in the bond markets.

Today, basic bond mathe­ matics involves different concepts and calculations. The level of understanding required to master bond pricing is quite high, and beyond the scope of this book. We concentrate instead on the essen­ tial elements required for a basic understanding. In the analysis that follows, bonds are assumed to be default-free. This means there is no possibility that the interest payments and principal repayment will not be made. Such an assumption is en­ tirely reasonable for government bonds such as US Treasuries and UK gilt-edged securities.

The last two conventions assume 30 days in each month, no matter what the calendar says. So, for example, it is assumed that there are 30 days between 10 February and 10 March. Under the 30/360 convention, if the first date is the 31st, it is changed to the 30th; if the second date is the 31st and the first date is either the 30th or the 31st, the second date is changed to the 30th. The 30E/360 convention differs from this in that – if the second date is the 31st – it is changed to the 30th regardless of what the first date is.
