- We will contrast holdings-based and transaction-based attribution, including operational considerations.
- An in-depth look at why fixed income attribution models need to be different from equity attribution models will be covered, and we will distill the differences between stocks and bonds into five critical concepts that shape the attribution approaches used.
- A framework for classifying fixed income attribution models into three broad categories will be covered.
- Three fixed income attribution models will be covered: Campisi, van Breukelen and McLaren.
- Detailed exercises and examples will be used to reinforce the concepts and math of all models covered.
