Managing Interest Rate Exposure in a Fed tightening Cycle


Description: 

Managing the fixed vs floating interest rate decision is one faced byTreasury staff every day.  While floating rate liabilities have outperformed fixed rate debt as a funding source, they also add volatility & uncertainty.

As the Federal Reserve is expected to begin raising interest rates off of historic lows this year, this decision will become front and center again for many. 

The Credit Suisse team will present their thoughts on the current interest rate environment as well as the historical movement of US Treasury & Swap rates around a Fed tightening cycle. They will also try to answer the question of should you be fixed orfloating heading into a Fed cycle and for what term?
