Description

Structural Interest Rate Risk derives from the potential risk that the results (accounting perspective) or the net worth of the entity (economic perspective) will be affected as a consequence of interest rate movements. This risk arises due to the difference between when the lending and borrowing rates of the entity are recalculated.

The interest rate risk from the perspective of the bank’s net worth is produced by movements, whether parallel or not, in the relevant interest rate curves, triggering changes in the economic value of the bank’s net worth.
