The only thing certain about interest rates is that they change. And this change creates risk. The risk of increasing interest expense for companies with floating-rate loans. The prospect of higher borrowing costs for those that anticipate a future need for debt financing.

With years of experience, our derivatives specialists can help identify and manage your interest rate exposure, based on your objectives and risk appetite. We work with you to customize a strategy and solutions to mitigate the risk of interest rate uncertainty and efficiently manage funding costs.

Common interest rate risk management strategies include:

Existing Debt Hedging

Use solutions designed from swaps and derivatives that convert floating-rate debt to fixed-rate debt.

Tax-exempt Debt Hedging

Mitigate the risk of eroding endowment value or increasing municipal debt costs.

Future Debt Hedging

Lock in current rates today to protect against rising rates tomorrow.
