Our interest rate risk expertise

For private equity firms, understanding interest rate risk in the relevant currencies is a key factor in effectively managing your portfolio company investments. By hedging interest rate exposure, you can offset risk and reduce the potential of earnings volatility. Chatham quantifies your interest rate risk, including capital structuring considerations for multi-currency investments, and demonstrates the impact of layering in various hedging alternatives under different rate scenarios.

While constructing the hedging program to create the desired risk profile, we work with potential counterparties to assess credit appetite and pricing and establish trading lines with competitive ISDA terms.

With deep experience across all interest rate derivatives, such as caps, swaps, collars, and cross-currency swaps, we can assist you in all aspects of interest rate risk management, including deal contingent hedging where beneficial. We offer insights into market trends, provide a complete and accurate assessment of counterparty alternatives and pricing, and advise on Dodd-Frank/EMIR compliance, relieving you and your companies of this significant burden.
