A Study about Elucidating Discount Function Properties from a Filtering Perspective
Abstract: This study identifies two properties of discount functions. First, discount functions can be conceived as nonlinear filters, where dynamic discount functions are low pass filters and static discount functions are high pass filters. Second, whether a discount function is static or dynamic depends on how interest rate paths are determined. Since the general principles of discounting and pricing apply to many financial products, the findings of this study are significant to financial theory and practice.
Introduction: Interest rate is a major determinant of theoretical prices of financial products. Some financial institutions have been developing new products by combining valuation models with innovative techniques where the specification of discount functions and interest rate dynamics provide the basis of model building. This study investigates the properties of discount functions using empirical data and provides fresh perspectives for reconsidering the robustness of economic and financial theories concerning financial products.
