Cap And Floor Agreement
Ceilings and floors are agreements between two parties for which one party agrees, for a pre-feeding tax, to compensate the other if a given interest rate (the so-called reference rate) differs from a predetermined level. The party that benefits when the reference rate deviates from a predetermined level is called a buyer, and the party that may have to make payments is designated as a seller. Fixed interest rates are called strike rates. A fixed interest rate cap that the seller agrees to pay the buyer when the reference rate exceeds the exercise rate. A fixed interest rate floor that the seller agrees to pay the buyer if the reference rate is lower than the exercise rate. An interest rate floor is an agreed interest rate in the lower interest rate range, linked to a variable rate loan product. Interest rates are used in derivatives and loan contracts.

The lender`s credit conditions structure the contract with an interest rate floor, which means that the interest rate is adjustable on the basis of the agreed market rate until the interest rate ceiling is reached. A loan with an interest rate floor has a minimum interest rate that must be paid by the borrower to protect the lender`s income. Similarly, an interest rate floor is a derivative contract by which the buyer receives payments at the end of each period during which the interest rate is below the agreed exercise price. (4) the frequency of reset; and (5) the nominal amount (which determines the amount of payments). If a ceiling or floor on the reset date is in the money, payment by the seller is usually late.
