When perturbing a key rate in order to assess sensitivity of portfolio value, what sort of interpolation is standard? A book I am looking at says linear, but this seems pretty unrealistic to me--and of real significance for longer durated portfolios or shorter term perturbations. Anyone familiar with literature on the matter? Thanks.
