Do you plan to borrow/invest, but worry that short-term interest rates will increase or fall?


In that case, we suggest that you fix the interest rate on your future loan/investment now via a Forward Rate Agreement.


Under this agreement, the bank guarantees to the buyer, for a specified period, a negotiated rate for a loan/investment for a defined amount and term.


At the end of the hedging period, the bank pays the buyer the interest differential between the market rate and the negotiated rate.
