Recent events have certainly put a new focus on interest rates.  This unpresented volatility reminds us that interest rate risk management in not just a trivial exercise, but a critical endeavor to the ongoing safety and security of an organization’s capital

Interest rate derivative solutions (Swaps/Caps/Floors) have become a valuable tool for many financial institutions when managing interest rate risk.  These tools allow for customized solutions that can minimize interest rate risk, and in many instances provide additive margin.

The class will explore the interest rate swaps and options market from a very basic and applied management perspective.  We will look at how these tools can and should be utilized to properly price various assets and liabilities to meet management’s objectives and expectations in this new rate environment.  Additionally, with the imminent dissolution of Libor (scheduled for 2021) we will discuss potential replacement indices and provide an update as to the progress of the initiative.

From locking in a maximum rate paid on capital and funding structures, to effective pricing of fixed rate loans, the proper application of these interest rate management tools will allow you to tailor interest rate characteristics throughout the balance sheet that will minimize your interest rate risk and maximize interest margins.
