multiperiod immunization


A bond portfolio strategy in which an investor ensures that liabilities can be met regardless of changes to interest rates. This is accomplished by matching the duration of the liabilities with the duration of the bonds within the portfolio, and by ensuring that the present values of the bonds in the portfolio match the present value of future liabilities. This type of strategy works only against non-parallel shifts in the yield curve.
