Smart Yield Bonds
Interest rate volatility risk mitigation using debt based derivatives.
Smart Yield product
Currently, the decentralized financial system is primarily offering variable rate annuities. However, the ability to structure yield into fixed rates will come in the form of locked collateral with a maturity on repayments, or bonds, as well as fixed rate yields with no maturity, or annuities. We don’t believe this to be a novel idea & we believe naturally that these types of products will come to DeFi over time. However, the types of derivatives & complexity reduction in financial planning you’ll be able to structure and implement with the existence of fixed yield in smart contracts will be mind blowing to traditional financial markets.

Decentralized financial instruments are showcasing the power that a trustless financial industry can wield. Powerhouse projects in the DeFi space like MakerDAO, Synthetix, AAVE, Compound, Curve, and others are producing yields for users that have none of the constraints and rent seeking of tradFi instruments by replacing bookkeepers, escrow and various overhead with algorithms, trustless oracles, and decentralized ledgers. Different market driven yields can be found on numerous decentralized platforms, but there is nothing out there that services & pulls together all of the different decentralized protocols & allows for a normalized risk curve and derivatives for risk mitigation.

Furthermore, efficiencies across lending protocols are non-existent in the current DeFi markets. The ability to pull yield from numerous protocols and tranche them into higher and lower yield buckets is something that exists in traditional financial markets but is more efficient in decentralized financial markets, assuming an acceptable level of liquidity.
Flattening the risk curve across DeFi.
Investors pool funds
The pool is exchanged to various assets and used supply to different lending protocols, each loan having it’s own yield.
The loans are then bundled in a CLO-like security
The CLO is then split into tranches, each tranche with a varying yield and risk.
These tranches are tokenized and sold back to the investors, which now instead of buying exposure to the entire risk curve of the lending protocols can choose to buy riskier/safer tranches depending on their investment strategy.
The person doing the bundling / securitization is banking on the fact that this structure will pull more funds towards the supply side of lending markets, which in turn will lower borowing rates (a mechanic to incentivize borrowing), which will lead to more loans being taken out. More loads = higher supply interests, which means the “CLO” will make even more returns, and there will be even more incentive for investors to create new pools.

Risk and Loss Scenarios.
Pooled collateral would be deposited into lending protocols or yield generating contracts, and the yield will be bundled up into different tranches and tokenized. So you could buy exposure to the most senior tranche and get a lower yield but have a much lower risk profile. SMART bonds are a way to buy and sell risk on yield with all of the pricing driven purely by the market.
