  • Abstract

    The rigorous version of Redington's theorem by Montrucchio and Peccati [12] is shown to be valid in a multivariate framework. It provides necessary and sufficient conditions for immunizing a fixed-income portfolio of assets and liabilities against a fixed non-parallel shift direction of the term structure of interest rates. As a consequence, immunization against all possible shift directions leads necessarily to an exact matching strategy.
