ERM Glossary: Interest rate risk
[this page | pdf | references | back links | custom searches]
Interest rate risk is the risk arising from changes in
interest rates. These include both the financial impact on mark-to-market
values as well as the impact on customer behaviour of changes in interest
rates. It may therefore be viewed as subset of market risk (or of ‘financial’
or ‘economic’ risk).
