Interest Rate Swap / Forward Rate Agreement

About the product

The interest rate swap/forward rate agreement (IRS/FRA) involves defining future, fixed interest rate effective for a pre-defined nominal of a transaction denominated in a single currency, for interest rate period(s) commencing on a pre-defined future date.


  • IRS/FRA allows buyer to hedge against risk of interest rate increase risk by determining fixed cost of financing for a given interest period(s).
  • IRS/FRA allows seller to hedge against the risk of interest rate decrease by fixing interest inflows from investment in a given interest period(s).
  • Solutions offered by the Bank do not require changing the existing credit or leasing agreements.


  • Transaction valuation during the transaction tenor may be negative relative to prevailing, current interest rates (spot and forward). Hence, in case of early transaction termination such outstanding amount becomes the Client's liability due and payable to the Bank.
