Exchange-Traded Fixed-Income Derivatives in Asset Management and Asset-Liability Management

In this paper, we examine how standard exchange-traded fixed-income derivatives (futures and options on futures contracts) can be made part of sound risk and asset management in such a way as to improve the risk and return performance characteristics of managed portfolios.

Our results show that the non-linear character of the returns on protective option strategies offers appealing risk reduction properties in pure asset management. Consequently, such strategies should optimally receive a significant allocation, especially when investors are concerned with minimising extreme risks. In asset-liability management, we also show that fixed-income derivatives in general, and recently launched long-term futures contracts in particular, offer significant shortfall risk reduction benefits. These results have potentially significant implications in the context of an increased focus on matching liability portfolios.
