The collection of references we've posted on our website tracks some of the most important and up to date work in this field.

Wooster Asset Management, LLC announced today that it has expanded its website to include a reference page of important academic research on the "forward rate bias," also referred to as the "forward premium puzzle" or the "forward discount bias."

"The forward rate bias is one of the oldest and most thoroughly documented market anomalies in modern finance and it is as relevant today as it was when it was first studied by academics 25 years ago," said Erik Postnieks, Chief Executive Officer, Wooster Asset Management.

"The 'uncovered interest rate parity theorem' holds that currencies with high interest rates should depreciate against currencies with low interest rates by an amount equal to their interest rate differential," said Erik Postnieks. "However, dozens of articles have been written over the past 25 years by over twenty well respected academics showing just the reverse: high interest rate currencies tend to appreciate against lower interest rate currencies over time. Thus, forward rates have been found to be 'biased' predictors of future spot rates."

Erik Postnieks added, "The collection of references we've posted on our website tracks some of the most important and up to date work in this field."
