Heath-Jarrow-Morton Model

A model that uses forward interest rates to determine prices for securities that are affected by changes in interest rates. The model is quite complex and used mainly by arbitrageurs. It may also be used in asset liability management.

HJM model was developed in early 1992 by Heath et al.
[r.sub.t] = f(t, t) and f(t, T) satisfies HJM model (9).
For example, Cairns, Blake, and Dowd (2006) consider a two-factor model; Bauer, Boerger, and Russ (2008) use a model that is parallel to the HJM model for interest rates.

Finally, if we model forward rates as log-normal processes the HJM model will explode (2).
Su has adopted the CIR model, RSCIR model, and no-arbitrage HJM model to study the term structure of SHBOR and the dynamics of its risk premium.

Alternatively, the HJM model considers the forward-rate as the basic ingredient in modeling the interest rate evolution.
