Resumo: Practitioners are used to value a broad class of exotic interest rate derivatives simply by adjusting for what is known as convexity adjustments (or convexity corrections). We start by exploiting the relations between various interest rate models and their connections to measure changes. As a result we classify convexity adjustments into forward adjustments and swaps adjustments. We, then, focus on affine term structure (ATS) models and, in this context, conjecture convexity adjustments should be related of affine functionals. In the case of forward ad¬justments, we show how to obtain exact formulas. Concretely for LIBOR in arrears (LIA) contracts, we derive the system of Riccatti ODE-s one needs to compute to obtain the exact adjustment. Based upon the ideas of Schrager and Pelsser (2006) we are also able to derive general swap adjustments useful, in particular, when dealing with constant maturity swaps (CMS). Our approach bypasses the need for Taylor approximations or unrealistic assumptions. They include exact convexity adjustments previously derived, such as the adjustments associated with Gaussian models, but are far more general as they provide solutions for the entire ATS class of models.
