Session Description

With global interest rates at historically low levels, funding and investing have become more challenging, with yield pick-ups developing in several countries. For example issuing debt in a country and swapping into dollars or investing in foreign sovereign debt and swapping it into dollars have become attractive opportunities.

This session will teach how to understand the interest rate basis and how to exploit discrepancies in effective rates when funding or investing in a foreign country.
