Single liability immunization takes care of one time parallel shfit in yield curve.

derswap07, My understanding is that as long as the 2 conditions mentioned in statement #1 are met, then there will be no risk from one time parallel shfit in yield curve. But credit risk is remained.

Immunization assumes a ONE TIME parallel shift in the yield curve. So now there are two risks to be considered: a) Credit risk 2) NON-parallel shift int he yield curve
