We think of a company that has to invest capital in six months (t1) over six months (t2) and we fear that the level of interest rates will fall in the coming months. Therefore, the company decides to close a FRA 6×12, that is, to pay, in six months, the interest rate currently in force on the market against the price of the FRA (forward rate). Assuming that on date t1, the market exchange rate is 4% and the rate before 5%:Return on investment: liquidation of the FRA: interest rate recovered: interest rate paid: Balance: Final result: Note that the FRA is not settled at maturity, but on the start date of the investment (which corresponds to the date from which interest begins). the equivalent of the contract is by:. Many banks and large corporations will use FRAs to hedge future interest or exchange rates. Hedge buyers against the risk of rising interest rates, while sellers are against the risk of falling interest rates. Other parties who use interest rate agreements in the future are speculators who also try to bet on future changes in the direction of interest rates.  Development swewings in the 1980s offered organizations an alternative to FRA to hang and speculate. The Forward Rate Agreement (FRA) is a derivative contract in which the parties agree to exchange, at the expiry of the contract, the difference between a fixed interest rate (or forward rate) and a market variable rate (or settlement rate) multiplied by the duration of the contract and the nominal capital. The period between the date of conclusion of the contract and the date from which interest begins is called the “Grace period”, which allows you to be immune to any future changes in interest rates. The seller fra receives the payment on the basis of the fixed rate and makes the payment on the basis of the variable rate, while the buyer collects the payment on the basis of the variable rate and makes the payment on the basis of the fixed rate. Since both contracting parties are required to provide their service, the FRA is a symmetric derivative contract. Fra makes it possible to immunize against future changes in interest rates; Fra allows you to invest or take on debt at a later date at the current utilization rate.
The sale of the FRA allows a person who needs to make a future investment to block the current advancement game.. . . .
