Interest Rate Risk Management
We provide a range of products and services for managing interest rate risk.
These include product information and advice on the merits of different instruments, market information and analysis, economic analysis, and risk assessment.
Interest Rate Swap
An agreement between you and Suncorp to exchange interest payment obligations (for example from variable to fixed) for an agreed period of time. This risk management solution is typically used to hedge against rising interest rates and to minimise borrowing costs.
Interest Rate Cap
An Interest Rate Cap is when you pay a premium for an agreement, which compensates your business if the interest rates rise above a certain pre-agreed level.
Interest Rate Floors & Collar
Use an Interest Rate Collar to set a minimum and maximum interest rate you will pay on a variable rate loan. You can create a Collar by buying an Interest Rate Cap (see above) from Suncorp and simultaneously selling an Interest Rate Floor to Suncorp. An Interest Rate Floor is an agreement, that if interest rates fall below a certain pre-agreed level, then compensation to Suncorp is required.
Interest Rate Swaption
An Interest Rate Swaption is used to set a fixed interest rate now, for a future date, without actually committing to an Interest Rate Swap transaction (See Interest Rate Swap above). You pay a premium for the option to enter into a Swap agreement on a specified date, without the obligation, protecting against potential interest rate rises.
