CoBank’s derivative products help hedge against interest rate risk for floating rate loans. Agribusinesses, rural infrastructure customers and Farm Credit partners (including their customers) can use our products to reduce their exposure, especially when facing interest rate uncertainty in volatile economic cycles.
We offer highly customizable derivative products so you can adjust your risk profile to match your business needs: hedge all or part of your debt, whether it’s a new or existing facility, for all or part of the term or even beyond the term if you’re planning new debt in the future.
