Forward Libor Rates

Identification. A spread is a measure of the difference between two variables. An interest rate spread specifically refers to the difference in interest rates, also called yield, of two related rates.

Seventeen banks for example currently contribute to the fixing of US Dollar Libor.

In recent years, interest-rate modeling has developed rapidly in terms of both practice and theory. The academic and practitioners' communities, however, have not always communicated as productively as would have been desirable.

Why do you think bonds trade at a premium or discount to par, because they're fixed rate. Leveraged loans are not fixed at funding. If they were, then the LBO market would be a fraction of the size it is today, because CLOs -- which have to invest in floating rate loans -- wouldn't be able to invest in any of the debt that is issued to finance the transaction. I'm not sure why you start off talking about loans and then switch to bonds.

Yes, high yield notes are priced at a fixed rate, but they're not financing the bulk of the LBO transactions. As for the premium or discount to par comment, that's something that happens with variable rate securities too. Wow some of the above statements about LBO financing and term debt are ridiculous and exactly why I would warn against from taking advice from anyone outside a select circle of proven posters. First, let me clarify my initial comment. I was questioning why a forward libor curve would be needed.

My bad, I left out the word forward. There's a difference between a forward libor curve and a libor yield curve - that's all I was pointing out. Do LBOs use floating rates, sure. But, the majority are done using fixed rate term loans. And the majority of loans in a CLO are fixed rate.

I supposed everyone sees different things, but that's what I saw and worked on while at GS and at my current gig. Were you a janitor at GS? What do you do what do you do where you see primarily fixed rate loans? I typically read anywhere from CIMs a week that are marketing loans, and I don't think I've ever seen a fixed rate term loan. Many CLOs can only invest in floating rate securities. It makes sense because CLOs generate returns based on the spread of what they're invested in over the rates they're borrowing at which are, for the most part, floating rate notes that the CLO issues.

Was not a janitor - was a Senior Facility Maintenance Engineer. All kidding aside, I guess I show my age from the days when virtually all term loans were fixed rate. I can definitely confirm that there's still plenty of fixed rate lending on terms loans used for LBOs; however, banks and CLOs are quick to swap them out to floating to avoid interest rate risk. I'm big enough to admit that I wasn't up to speed on the availability of the floating rate term loans, but it appears that there are also still plenty of fixed rate term loans - but this makes sense because as a borrower it's natural to want to lock in today's low rates.

I think you have it the other way around. I don't want to say never However, that is not the norm. Go and read any credit agreement or offering memorandum The reason they are likely to borrow from each other is because the FED is monitoring the banks and if banks borrow money from the FED too often, the FED could deem them as illiquid and require them to follow stricter rules or basically the FED gets involved in the banks decision making process.

And as we know, Banks don't like the interference. This allows for a cleaner comparison of the yields of the two bonds since the duration component of the yield is a wash. As a result, they two will have very high correlation. One thing to remember is the GNMA is negatively convexed instrument since the mortgage holders essentially have a call option to prepay whenever they want.
