A Finite-Dimensional Hjm Model: How Important Is Arbitrage-Free Evolution?
We consider a two-factor Heath–Jarrow–Morton (HJM) model under the risk neutral measure and show that it may be decoupled into a particular dynamic Nelson–Siegel (NS) model plus a somewhat counter-intuitive adjustment (lying outside the NS family) which keeps it arbitrage-free. We assess the importance of the adjustment for arbitrage-free pricing by comparing the HJM model with a novel NS model which is selected using projection techniques. We analyze forward curves and derivative prices generated by the HJM and projected NS model and consider two real-world case studies. Our analysis shows that the influence of the adjustment term on arbitrage-free evolution is small.
