On Unspanned Latent Risks in Dynamic Term Structure Models

  title={On Unspanned Latent Risks in Dynamic Term Structure Models},
  author={Tomasz Dubiel-Teleszynski and Konstantinos Kalogeropoulos and Nikolaos Karouzakis},
We explore the importance of information hidden from the yield curve and assess how valuable the unspanned risks are to a real-time Bayesian investor seeking to forecast excess bond returns and maximise her utility. We propose a novel class of arbitrage-free unspanned Dynamic Term Structure Models (DTSM), that embed a stochastic market price of risk specification. We develop a suitable Sequential Monte Carlo (SMC) inferential and prediction scheme that guarantees joint identification of…

Restrictions on the risk-pricing in dynamic term structure models (DTSMs) tighten the link between cross-sectional and time-series variation of interest rates, and make absence of arbitrage useful

Bond Return Predictability: Economic Value and Links to the Macroeconomy

It is found that bond excess returns are predicted to be significantly higher during periods with high inflation uncertainty and low economic growth and that the degree of predictability rises during recessions.

The Structure of Risks in Equilibrium Affine Models of Bond Yields ∗

Many equilibrium term structure models (ETSMs) in which the state of the economy follows an affine process imply that the variation in expected excess returns on bond portfolio positions is fully

Risk Premiums in Dynamic Term Structure Models with Unspanned Macro Risks

type="main"> This paper quantifies how variation in economic activity and inflation in the United States influences the market prices of level, slope, and curvature risks in Treasury markets. We

Can we Exploit Predictability in Bond Markets?

This paper investigates the optimal bond portfolio choice of an investor in a model that captures both the failure of the expectation hypothesis and recent findings that variables not in the term

Learning From Disagreement in the U.S. Treasury Bond Market

This paper studies an arbitrage-free dynamic term structure model of a Bayesian learner who presumes that dispersion of beliefs is priced in Treasury markets and that measured dispersion has

The Economic Value of Predicting Bond Risk Premia

Macro Factors in Bond Risk Premia

Empirical evidence suggests that excess bond returns are forecastable by financial indicators such as forward spreads and yield spreads, a violation of the expectations hypothesis based on constant

Risks and Risk Premia in the US Treasury Market

We analyze the risk-return trade-off in the US Treasury market using a term-structure model that features volatility-in-mean effects of multiple sources, and yet preserves tractable bond prices. We

Term premia and interest rate forecasts in affine models

The standard class of affine models produces poor forecasts of future Treasury yields. Better forecasts are generated by assuming that yields follow random walks. The failure of these models is
