How do interest rate swaps work?

In a common interest rate example, a borrower will receive a floating rate payment in exchange for a fixed rate payment. The floating rate received from the swap offsets the floating rate paid on the loan thereby creating a simple, effective way to control exposure to rising rates.

Monthly settlement statements will show the floating rate received versus the fixed rate paid and net the difference. If the floating rate received is higher than the fixed rate paid, the borrower receives the difference and vice versa. If the maturity and dollar amount of the swap matches that of the loan, the borrower effectively converts their floating rate loan into a fixed rate, without changing the terms of the underlying loan.

What are interest rate swaps?

An interest rate swap is an agreement between two parties to exchange interest payments for a set length of time based on a specified dollar amount. In a single, upfront transaction, a borrower can customize the length of time and dollar amount to use in this exchange to craft a unique hedge to interest rate risk.

Do you offer SOFR?

Yes. With the much-anticipated transition away from LIBOR, we are now pleased to announce our ability to use the Secured Overnight Funding Rate (SOFR) for clients interested in swap transactions.

Do you offer interest rate options like caps and floors?

Yes, we offer interest rate options. Caps and floors, which are tradeable OTC contracts, can provide flexible, cost-efficient ways to control long-term borrowing costs. Similar to interest rate swaps, they are used to "lock in" the interest rate risk on floating rate loans.
