Predominantly they expose the user to market risks and specifically interest rate risk. The value of an interest rate swap will change as market interest rates rise and fall. In market terminology this is often referred to as delta risk. Interest rate swaps also exhibit gamma risk whereby their delta risk increases or decreases as market Interest Rate Risk: The interest rate risk is the risk that an investment's value will change due to a change in the absolute level of interest rates, in the spread between two rates, in the shape Interest Rate Risk: The interest rate risk is the risk that an investment's value will change due to a change in the absolute level of interest rates, in the spread between two rates, in the shape Another Greek option, the gamma, is an expression of the changes in the position size (i.e. the changes in the delta) as it corresponds with changes in the level of interest rates, while vega is the sensitivity of the portfolio to changes in implied volatilities for at-the-money options associated with the maturity bucket in question. That may be important, for example, if the portfolio An interest rate rise puts financial pressure on the client, which may in turn result in default of loan payments. The major factors that lead to increased interest rate risk are the volatility of interest rates and mismatches between the interest reset dates on assets and liabilities. Interest rate risk is a major component of market risk. Interest rate risk is also impacted by the coupon rate. The bond with a lower coupon rate has higher interest rate risk as compared to a bond with a higher interest rate. This is so, as a small change in the market interest rate can easily outweigh the lower coupon rate and will reduce the market price of that bond. Types of Interest Rate Risk
