Interest rate (derivative)

Corporates can be exposed to interest rate risk in numerous ways, both impacting their assets and liabilities. Short-term (LIBOR) rates, often being the basis for floating (bank) debt and short-term deposits, change on a daily basis. Long-term rates, being the basis for debt capital markets issuance, can even change every second.


For most corporates today, interest rate risk is an integrated part of the risk management strategy.

A first step is to analyse these risks. ING Wholesale Banking (WB)’s corporate risk solution teams can perform such analyses for your company based on several models, using client specific information (e.g. financing needs, existing loan portfolio, debt maturity calendar, etc.) and market data (e.g. interest rates, currency rates, level of volatility). Based on the outcome of this analysis, steps on how to best manage and reduce this risk are formulated.

Financial instruments, like interest rate derivatives, are commonly used in asset and liability management. ING WB offers a wide range of these products.
