- A zip file containing code and data from my book:

Strategic Asset Allocation in Fixed Income Markets: A Matlab based user's guide

Since these codes were written using a previous version of Matlab, version 2008 it is possible that some of the functions nolonger runs. Please send me an email if you encounter problems.

- Code to perform spillover analysis following the Diebold-Yilmaz approach:

Note that this code may run a bit slow because it calculates spillovers for both Cholesky and Generalised FEVDs.

- Some code that can be used to fit the Smith-Wilson yield curve mode:

I implemented the Smith-Wilson model while I was working for EIOPA. However, please note that the code made available here is not identical to that currently used by EIOPA to produce risk free discount curves.

- A short summary on how to fit a yield curve to bond data using MATLAB's Financial Instruments Toolbox:

- Comparing Orthogonalised and Generalised Impulse Response Functions:

- Yield curve projections that are guaranteed to pass through future pre-specified yield curve fix-points (and the dynamic Nelson-Siegel model estimated with OLS and MATLAB's state-space toolbox):

- A term structure modelling class programmed in MATLAB. It facilitates estimation of several yield curve models (e.g. dynamic Nelson-Siegel, Svensson-Soderlind, and JSZ). The term structure of term premia are also calculated. An example file is included to illustrate how to use the code, and background documentation is added as well.
