convexity- understanding it
I want to make sure I understand convexity. If told we want to reduce risk of a fixed income portfolio, and given two portfolios with the same durations, same yields, but different convexities, would we always choose the one w/ lower convexity?
I get confused because convexity is both a measure of risk (bad) AND protection from large rate changes (good), is it not?
