Product Overview

This case provides an opportunity to introduce and apply the pure-expectations theory of interest rates. It also brings out the fundamentals of option pricing by considering the refinancing option embedded in the long-term mortgage alternative. Because of the refinancing option, the spread charged by the bank for the long-term mortgage is too low, which suggests that an arbitrage opportunity is available by constructing a "homemade" interest-rate swap.
