        What I don’t get is why are we using the 0.25 cash duration? I thought we should be using 0 as the target duration since we are removing 5.5billion exposure?

          Apologies guys, I think i got this, as the example in the book was having cash duration of 0.

          So in SS10 cash duration is assumed to be 0?
          However, in SS15 cash duration will be given?
