Advantages Of Forward Rate Agreement

Written by: saadmin

According to Moorad Choudhry, an advance rate agreement has no advances or associated bonuses. There is no capital change at the time of the contractual agreement. Redirect agreements do not have a transaction fee. A futures contract can gain value for one party and become a liability for another if the market value of the underlying assets changes. Advance contracts are a zero-sum game where if one person earns $500, the other person loses $500. If your view of interest rates changes at any time after entering the FRA, you have two options. You can terminate the FRA, in which case the bank calculates a residual value and either the bank pays you that amount or you pay the amount to the bank. The residual value depends on current interest rates at the time of termination. Alternatively, you can enter an identical but opposite FRA that will cancel the original transaction and leave a residual value to pay at the beginning of the new FRA.

The Forward Rate Agreement or FRA is an over-the-counter cash interest rate derivative. It is a contract between two parties who wish to protect themselves against interest rate risks. As part of this agreement, two parties agree to exchange future interest payments on the basis of a certain nominal amount. In this case, the first part is required to make payments to the second part at a specified fixed interest rate and the second party makes payments to the first part at a variable rate called the reference rate. Libor (London Interbank Offered Rate) and EURIBOR (European Interbank Offered Rate) are the most frequently used benchmark interest rates. According to Brian Coyle in the book “Hedging Interest-Rate Exposures” are effective advance rate agreements in managing interest rate risks. It protects a company from the volatility of money markets that generate variable interest rates. If P is the nominal amount (also called principal), the reference rate (on an annual basis), rFRA is the contract rate (on an annual basis), t is a contract term in days and T is an annual basis in days (360 for USD and EUR, 365 for GBP). At the same time, the borrower agrees to pay the bankbill reference interest rate (BBSW) on the same nominal principal amount to the bank. As a borrower, this allows you to lock in the interest rate on your loan instead of being at the mercy of the markets. There is no capital exchange, but only the difference between current market interest rates and the interest rate agreed by the FRA is exchanged.
