Talkiing about Fixed Income as a whole, how quantitative is it? I know there are more quantitative products within it (cds, cdo) and less quantitative (high yielding), but on average, how much quantitative knowledge would a trader need? And on a daily basis, how do traders make use of this knowledge? (the more details, the better!)
I've read somewhere here that FI requites Multivariable Calculus, a little bit of Linear Algebra, Statistics, but my question is more about how this kind of knowledge is used by traders on a daily basis.
