Inflation, ECB and short-term interest rates: A new model, with calibration to market data

  title={Inflation, ECB and short-term interest rates: A new model, with calibration to market data},
  author={Flavia Antonacci and Cristina Costantini and Fernanda D'Ippoliti and Marco Papi},
  journal={arXiv: Mathematical Finance},
We propose a new model for the joint evolution of the European inflation rate, the European Central Bank official interest rate and the short-term interest rate, in a stochastic, continuous time setting. We derive the valuation equation for a contingent claim and show that it has a unique solution. The contingent claim payoff may depend on all three economic factors of the model and the discount factor is allowed to include inflation. Taking as a benchmark the model of Ho, H.W., Huang, H.H… Expand

Information, Inflation, and Interest
We propose a class of discrete-time stochastic models for the pricing of inflation-linked assets. The paper begins with an axiomatic scheme for asset pricing and interest rate theory in aExpand
The affine inflation market models
ABSTRACT Interest rate market models, such as the LIBOR market model, have the advantage that the basic model quantities are directly observable in financial markets. Inflation market models extendExpand
Inflation Expectations, Real Rates, and Risk Premia: Evidence from Inflation Swaps
This paper develops a model of the term structures of nominal and real interest rates driven by state variables representing the short-term real interest rate, expected inflation, inflation’s centralExpand
Pricing Treasury Inflation Protected Securities and Related Derivatives using an HJM Model
Abstract This paper uses an HJM model to price TIPS and related derivative securities. First, using the market prices of TIPS and ordinary U.S. Treasury securities, both the real and nominalExpand
Affine model of inflation-indexed derivatives and inflation risk premium
This paper proposes an affine-based approach which jointly captures the nominal interest rate, the real interest rate, and the inflation risk premium to price inflation-indexed derivatives, includingExpand
Tips from TIPS: The Informational Content of Treasury Inflation-Protected Security Prices
TIPS breakeven inflation rate, defined as the difference between nominal and TIPS yields of comparable maturities, is potentially useful as a real-time measure of market inflation expectations. InExpand
Pricing inflation-indexed derivatives
In this article, we start by briefly reviewing the approach proposed by Jarrow and Yildirim for modelling inflation and nominal rates in a consistent way. Their methodology is applied to the pricingExpand
Singular risk-neutral valuation equations
This paper proves existence and uniqueness of (continuous) viscosity solutions for linear PIDEs with all the above features, under a Lyapunov-type condition, in jump-diffusion stochastic volatility and path-dependent volatility models. Expand
Multi-Factor Financial Derivatives on Finite Domains
In this paper, we introduce reversion conditions for stochastic models. Also we prove that if the models satisfy reversion conditions and the market prices of risks are bounded, then the final-valueExpand
On the use of boundary conditions for variational formulations arising in financial mathematics
The focus of this paper is to examine the applicability of a promising recent development, namely Radial Basis Functions (RBF), to the problem of option valuation. Expand
