Abstract


The objective of this paper is to provide a monthly estimation of the interest rate term structure in the European interbank market since the beginning of the European Monetary Union. In order to do this, we apply the Fama-Bliss bootstrapping method with the approximating function of one of the methods most commonly applied by the central banks, the Nelson and Siegel method (1987).
