ERM Glossary: Interest rate risk

[this page | pdf | references | back links]

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).
