This course will teach you all about bonds. First, we'll take a look at the role of bonds in financing governments, corporations, households and financial institutions around the world. Next, we'll dive into bond math. You'll learn the various calculations and concepts required to accurately analyze the large variety of fixed income products. We'll start slow, but will quickly build up to some of the most traditionally confusing bond concepts: convexity, duration, spot rates, forward rates and the drivers of changes to the all-important yield curve. We conclude with a discussion of credit analysis and an overview of debt capital markets. Enjoy the course!
