Generalizations of Ho–Lee’s binomial interest rate model I: from one- to multi-factor
AbstractIn this paper a multi-factor generalization of Ho–Lee model is proposed. In sharp contrast to the classical Ho–Lee, this generalization allows for those movements other than parallel shifts, while it still is described by a recombining tree, and is a process with stationary independent increments to be compatible with principal component analysis. Based on the model, generalizations of duration-based hedging are proposed. A continuous-time limit of the model is also discussed. Copyright Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2006
