Future Interest Rate Agreements (FRA) are over-the-counter contracts between parties that set the interest rate to be paid on an agreed date in the future. A FRA is an agreement to exchange an interest rate bond on a nominal amount. Fra`s payment formula takes into account five different variables. They are: Company A enters into a FRA with Company B, in which Company A gets a fixed rate of 5% on a face value of $1 million in one year. In return, Company B receives the one-year LIBOR rate set in three years on the nominal amount. The contract is settled in cash in a payment method at the beginning of the term period, with interest in an amount calculated with the rate of the contract and the duration of the contract.
