Fixed income products and markets

In this first section, we explore the key features of a bond including the issuer, coupon and maturity date. The key issuers are covered and ratings for bonds are discussed. Bond prices are driven by changes in the yield curve. Typical yield curve shapes are investigated together with how the yield curve moves through the economic cycle. The module uses Bloomberg’s DES, YAS and IYC screens to illustrate the points discussed.

  • Learn the key features of fixed income securities & bonds
  • Understand the yield curve and what it represents
  • Track yield curve changes throughout the economic cycle

Pricing fixed income securities and duration

The second module starts by demonstrating how bonds are priced using discounted cash flow and the relationship between a bond’s price and its yield. Clean prices, dirty prices, and accrued interest are also discussed. Understanding how bond prices move as their yields moved is a fundamental concept in the fixed income market. Macaulay and modified duration are both explained. The session provides an intuitive explanation of these concepts before looking at the detailed calculations.

  • Use DCF to price bonds
  • Learn the relationship between bond prices and yields
  • Use duration to learn how bond prices move in the market

Fixed Income Fundamentals Course Review

by Brenden Kester
The material in the course is somewhat challenging to understand on it's face. However, CFI does a great job at explaining it so it comes off as intuitive. It may take another 1 or 2 course completions to understand the underlying concepts due to their nature but overall the course does a great job at hitting all of the fundamental fixed income building blocks.

I just completed one free course Fixed Income Fundamentals and enjoyed the learning thoroughly. The instructor videos are professionally prepared, well presented and easy to understand. The best part is the course is interesting and provides practical training on using the tools and techniques. This is motivating and immensely satisfying. I am looking forward to receiving the digital certificate for this course and then buying the full course set.

The course gave me the necessary challenges, and the lecturers presented the course excellently. However, the downloadable notes were too summarized. They had little help in the qualifying test.
