What is ‘Absolute Rate’
The fixed portion of an interest-rate swap, expressed as a percentage rather than as a premium or a discount to a reference rate.
Explaining ‘Absolute Rate’
The absolute rate is a combination of the reference rate and the premium or discounted fixed percentage. For example, if the LIBOR is 3% and the fixed interest portion of the swap is at a 7% premium, the absolute rate is 10%.
