The 4 main types of interest rate risks are:

  • Repricing risk: Risks that arise from timing differences between rate changes and cash flows.
  • Basis risk: Risks that arise when the interest rates of different financial instruments do not change in correlation.
  • Yield curve risk: Risk that arises from the yield curve shifting and affecting the value of fixed-income securities.
  • Options risk: Risks that arise from using different interest rate derivatives to hedge against interest rate risk.
