Imperfect Capital Markets: The Micro-Macro Link 45 A third, more complete conception claims that risk or default cost will actually affect both the discount rate and the cost of external funds. 28 Here it is often assumed that the interest rate is a convex function of the leverage. Although this line of thought represents the most comprehensive conception of how the firm’s degree of leverage affects its value, it is analytically the least tractable formulation.

3) (1 + r1 )(1 + r2 )(1 + r3 ) discounting by the expected short term interest rates 3 For a more detailed technical description of the following, see Neftci (1996, Chap. 16). W. 1007/978-3-642-20680-1_3, © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2011 17 18 Chapter 3. 5) The above relates the bond prices (the spectrum of bond prices) to the yield (spectrum of yields). One can obtain the yield curve from the future short rates. 6) Note that in continuous time the slope of the yield curve is dRtu /du. Moreover, we can define forward rates (on a loan that begins at time u and matures at T) as: F (t, u, T ) = log B(u, t) − log B(T, t) ; t

We propose, however, a simplified version of the more complex model by Balduzzi (1997) who allows for an additional stochastic process to determine the central tendency. In our case the mean reversion process is simply determined by the spread between two long rates. We show that the spread between two longer maturity bond rates gives, for periods of stronger changes of the central tendency, useful predictions for future short term rate movements and thus for the term structure of interest rates.
