Measuring market-based core inflation expectations

We build a novel term-structure model for pricing synthetic euro area core inflation-linked swaps (ILS). Our approach relies on a term-structure model of traded headline ILS rates, assumed to span core inflation. From these synthetic swaps, we can extract genuine euro area core inflation expectations of market participants.
