Fixed income volatility and equity

volatility evolve heterogeneously over time, co-moving disproportionately

during periods of global imbalances and each reacting to events of different

nature. While the methodology for options-based "model-free" pricing

of equity volatility has been known for some time, little is known about

analogous methodologies for pricing various fixed income volatilities.

This book fills this gap and provides a

unified evaluation framework of fixed income volatility while dealing with

disparate markets such as interest-rate swaps, government bonds, time-deposits

and credit. It develops model-free, forward looking indexes of fixed-income

volatility that match different quoting conventions across various markets, and

uncovers subtle yet important pitfalls arising from naive superimpositions of

the standard equity volatility methodology when pricing various fixed income
