The interest rate swap rate is the fixed rate that is paid on an interest rate swap to receive payments based on a floating rate.
In an interest rate swap agreement, one party undertakes payments linked to a floating interest rate index and receives a stream of fixed interest payments. The second party undertakes the reverse arrangement. The interest rate swap rate represents the fixed rate paid on a rate swap to receive payments based on a floating rate.
