Abstract

In this paper we estimate yield curves from Hungarian interest rate swap and money market data. Following general practice, we experiment with several models-differing in the functional form and objective function-and chose the model which performs best according to standard evaluation criteria. We find that the methods perform equally well in terms of residuals and out-of-sample fit; however, the smoothing spline method stands out when we consider the ability to fit the short end of the maturity spectrum, stability of estimation and plausibility of the estimated curves.
