In a world where regulators are focusing on liquidity and capital it's easy to overlook market risk. In many firms this means interest rate exposure. In the UK with Bank Rate at an all time low it's tempting to think that hedging fixed rate assets is just a waste of money. After all why pay 3.25% on a 5 year swap when 3 month Libor is only 51 basis points? Surely matching the interest basis on assets and liabilities ends up costing you 274 bps doesn't it?
