Summary

With record-breaking corporate bond issuances, the 10-year Treasury continuing to rise, and a dramatically steepening yield curve leading into 2021, many corporates are wrestling with the topic of pre-issuance hedging of future fixed rate debt. Join us as we host a panel of treasury practitioners discussing external market factors, internal capital structure factors, and tactical considerations to maximize effective risk mitigation and efficient pricing.

Key takeaways

  • Understand the current factors bringing pre-issuance hedging to the forefront of corporate financial risk management discussions
  • Learn how corporate treasury practitioners analyzed their interest rate risk, made hedging decisions, obtained efficient pricing, and communicated decisions to stakeholders
  • Consider swaps vs. treasury locks and how to determine which instrument is appropriate for your specific scenario
