Interest Rate Swaps
Not Sure Where to Start or Who to Trust?
Interest rate swaps are offered by many banks as part of commercial loan financing. A swap changes an adjustable rate loan into a fixed rate loan. A swap can minimize your interest rate risk and reduce your costs.
For over 20 years we’ve helped clients choose and negotiate the best interest rate swaps for their loans. We’ll save you money on your loan interest payments while preserving your important relationship with your bank and avoiding costly mistakes.

Our Complete Interest Rate Hedging Service
Unique to our industry, we operate as your trusted advisor from the initial consultation through the full lifetime of your loan.
Which is best for your unique situation – an interest rate swap or an interest rate cap? What portion of the loan should be hedged? What duration hedge should be used? Should multiple hedges be used? We’ve seen it all, and we will help you quickly decide on the best path for your loan and business needs, saving you from costly long-term mistakes.
We negotiate the interest rate hedge terms for you, pursuing quotes from multiple banks and getting them to compete for your benefit. And we do this while being keenly aware of the need to preserve your good relationship with your existing bank.
Ongoing Financial Planning
Each quarter for the lifetime of your loan we will provide you with a review of your interest rate hedge performance. You’ll be able to see your cost savings over time, and we’ll help you determine if it may make sense to restructure or terminate your swap or cap, and how to save money in the process.
