LIBOR Market Model

The LIBOR Market Model (LMM) is the industry standard model for pricing interest rate derivatives. Based on the Heath-Jarrow-Morton (HJM) forward rate approach, it builds a process for LIBOR interest rates, assuming a conditional lognormal process for LIBOR.

Most implementations of the LIBOR Market Model (LMM) use Monte Carlo simulation to price European-style and Bermudan-style swaptions. Here we illustrate an alternative, re-combining binomial tree approach.

This website provides all you need to know about the model including :
  • a new approach to building the LIBOR Market Model (LMM), using recombining binomial tree
  • a simple proof of the model and the drift of forward rate
  • an illustration of a two-factor implementation of the methodology for the pricing of swaptions
  • details on the calibration of the model to cap and swaption volatilities
  • information on courses on the LIBOR Market Model (LMM) and its construction
  • alternative models of interest rate processes - pros and cons
  • important references on the LIBOR Market Model (LMM)
  • our consultancy services
