Hedging Interest Rate Risk in Today’s Environment
This session will focus on the current interest rate hedging environment and how borrowers are addressing their risks. The potential impact of both rising rates and increased credit/refinance activity after a zero interest rate policy is a key concern for current and potential market participants and these variables will be discussed. Hedging these risks can help borrowers to optimize the risk/return tradeoffs inherent in protecting their interest costs. Various strategies/approaches for hedging these risks will be illustrated and discussed.
