I learned that I can contact Bloomberg Help Desk and got an answer from there: YAS_RISK is DV01/100, where DV01 is the dollar price change resulting from a one-basis-point change in yield. YAS_RISK is given in the currency of the bond, because DV01/100 is a percentage of the face value, and the face value currency is the currency of the bond. Please ...


I think it might be helpful to give an example here. So lets say you would want to estimate your PnL for a bond using the yield change and use YAS_RISK to retrieve your DV01 for a specific nominal. Assuming nominal of 1,000,000 Yield change: Lets use a realtime field for yield change RT_YLD_CHG_NET_1D This is in percentage To get the DV01 for your nominal ...


I've only got the same documentation as you but I'd say YAS_RISK is a rate of change per 100 bp interest rate change, i.e. the unit is percent which makes sense given that most bonds are quoted in percent on par.
