Interest rate risk

Interest rate risk is the risk of potential loss due to adverse movements in interest rates. Interest rate risk within FMO stems from the following products: loans, funding instruments, bonds/deposits, derivatives and money market funds. FMO manages its interest position through the Price Value per Basis Point (PVBP). The PVBP expresses the impact on the fair value of the financial instruments by a basis point change in yield.

FMO's policy with regard to interest rate risk is to match funding within set boundaries: to match interest rate characteristics for assets, liabilities and derivatives per currency, and per remaining term as much as possible; and to generate stable income on FMO's capital by investing in fixed bonds and loans.

The following table summarizes the interest re-pricing characteristics for FMO's assets and liabilities. Included in the table are FMO's assets and liabilities at carrying values, categorized by the earlier of contractual re-pricing or maturity dates.

1)The sensitivity of net interest income is based on the floating rate financial assets and liabilities held at year-end, including the effect of hedging instruments. The interest rate sensitivities set are illustrative only and employ simplified scenarios. It should be noted that the effects may not be linear (convexity not included) and therefore the results cannot be extrapolated. The sensitivities do not incorporate actions that could be taken by management to mitigate the effect of the interest rate movements, nor second-round effects.
