Interest Rate Risk Management
What is it
Interest rate risk management aims to protect companies against volatility of interest rates (such as EURIBOR, SOFIBOR, LIBOR) , that their bank loan payments depend on.
This protection is achieved by ensuring:
- A fixed interest rate level for the entire loan period
- The maximum and/or minimum interest rate that provide a worst-case scenario with the option to take advantage of more favorable interest rate levels.
Up to 100% protection against fluctuations in interest rates
Up to 100% predictability of future interest payments, cost of financing etc.
