An interest rate cap is a kind of interest rate derivative in which the buyer receives payments at the end of each period during which the interest rate exceeds the agreed exercise price. An example of a cap would be an agreement to obtain a payment for each month when the libor rate exceeds 2.5%. The interest rate ceiling can be analysed as a series of European call options, called caplets, that exist for each period during which the Cap Agreement exists. To exercise a ceiling, the buyer is generally not required to notify the seller, as the ceiling is exercised automatically when the interest rate is higher than the strike (rate). [1] Note that this automatic exercise feature is different from most other options. Each caplet is set in cash at the end of the period to which it relates. [1] Section 5.1 of the FMYN-CAP contract asks Reclamation, on behalf of the Ministry of the Interior, to approve all of these agreements. An interest rate cap is a derivative by which the buyer receives payments at the end of each period during which the interest rate is higher than the agreed exercise price. An example of a cap would be an agreement to obtain a payment for each month when the libor rate exceeds 2.5%. They are most often collected for periods of between 2 and 5 years, although this can vary considerably. [1] Since the exercise price reflects the maximum interest rate payable by the purchaser of the cap, it is often an entire number. B 5% or 7%.

[1] In comparison, the underlying index of a ceiling is often a libor rate or a national rate. [1] The size of the ceiling is called its fictitious profile and can be changed over the life of a cap, for example to reflect amounts borrowed under a depreciation loan. [1] The purchase price of a cap is a one-time cost and is called a premium. [1] Some mortgages may have interest at any time that may change, while others have interest rates that are reset at a certain time. During the period of interest of the MRA variables, a ceiling can be introduced at a certain level. Regardless of the time frame for authorized increases, the rate cannot be changed to a level above its ceiling if it has been introduced under the contractual terms of credit. It is an agreement between a buyer and a financial institution such as a bank to obtain compensation if the reference rate exceeds an agreed level, called strike rate.
