Supporting your business

Bankwest understands the risks businesses face when exposed to both domestic and global financial markets. Our team of industry accredited specialists can provide tools to help you not only to identify, but manage both interest rate and foreign exchange risk.

We have a range of products to help you manage interest rate risk, including:

Interest Rate Swap

An Interest Rate Swap allows you to set a fixed interest rate for your variable interest rate loan to protect you from higher interest rates in the market and to provide you with a known rate for the future. Swaps are flexible and efficient, and are one of the most commonly applied interest rate risk management tools.

Interest Rate Cap

An Interest Rate Cap allows you to set a cap on the interest rate of your variable interest rate loan to protect you against interest rate movements and provide you with a known maximum rate for your loan.

Interest Rate Collar

An Interest Rate Collar allows you to set a maximum and a minimum interest rate for your variable interest rate loan, so your interest rate payments are all at the applicable variable rate between the set maximum and minimum interest rates.

Combination Swap/Cap

An interest rate swap/cap combination allows you to set an amount of your variable interest rate loan to have a interest rate cap and amount of your variable interest rate loan to have a fixed interest rate.
