Starting with observable annually compounded forward rates we derive a term structure model of interest rates. The model relies upon the assumption that a specific set of annually compounded forward rates is log-normally distributed. We derive solutions for interest rate caps and floors as well...

The lognormal distribution assumption for the term structure of interest is the most natural way to exclude negative spot and forward rates. However, imposing this assumption on the continuously compounded interest rate has a serious drawback: rates explode and expected rollover returns are...

The lognormal distribution assumption for the term structure of interest is the most natural way to exclude negative spot and forward rates ... The purpose of this paper is to show that the problem with lognormal models result from modelling the wrong rate, namely the continuously compounded...
