Convert IRFunctionCurve object to RateSpec


F = toRateSpec(CurveObj, InpDates)



Interest-rate curve object that is constructed using IRFunctionCurve.


Vector of input dates using MATLAB® date format. The input dates must be after the settle date.


F = toRateSpec(CurveObj, InpDates) returns a RateSpec object that is identical to the RateSpec structure created by the Financial Instruments Toolbox™ function intenvset.

This example shows how to convert an IRFunctionCurve object to a RateSpec. First, an IRFunctionCurve object is created using the function IRFunctionCurve constructor, then a RateSpec structure is created using the toRateSpec method.

irfc = IRFunctionCurve('Forward',today,@(t) polyval([-0.0001 0.003 0.02],t));
toRateSpec(irfc, today+30:30:today+365)
ans =
