Abstract. For an interest rate model to predict future rates, it is highly desirable that it has embedded in it the current term structure of interest rates known in the market. For the general four-parameter interest rates model incorporating the current yield into the model seems intractable. In the present paper we consider a first order approximation, valid for large time to maturity, to fit the current yield curve into the model. The resulting interest rate model is described which includes, as a particular case, the well-known interest rate model of Vasicek [11].
