How important are interest rates? To the consumer paying the mortgage or automobile loan, interest rates determine what sort of house or automobile can be bought. To a businessperson, interest rates are crucial in determining the health of the company. Newspapers, journals and specialty periodicals routinely feature horror stories of how once-thriving companies, choked by debt incurred as a result of high interest payments, have been forced to sell their assets or declare bankruptcy.

Given the stakes, financial managers seek opportunities to limit interest rate risk and control the costs associated with it. Since the 1980s, there has been an explosion of financial tools designed for just this purpose. In the title of the book, Interest Rate Futures and Options, authors Mark Pitts and Frank Fabozzi point to two solutions to the problem.
