Estimating time-varying risk premia in UK long-term government bonds

Steeley, James M. (2004). Estimating time-varying risk premia in UK long-term government bonds. Applied Financial Economics, 14 (5), pp. 367-373.


Simple models of time-varying risk premia are used to measure the risk premia in long-term UK government bonds. The parameters of the models can be estimated using nonlinear seemingly unrelated regression (NL-SUR), which permits efficient use of information across the entire yield curve and facilitates the testing of various cross-sectional restrictions. The estimated time-varying premia are found to be substantially different to those estimated using models that assume constant risk premia. © 2004 Taylor and Francis Ltd.
