Have I been Mis-Sold an Interest Rate Swap?

When selling Interest Rate Swap products, the bank or financial institution has an obligation to ensure that:

  • The product is suitable for the client
  • The customer fully understands the product that is being sold
  • The customer fully understands the risks

Examples of mis-selling:

  • The customer did not understand how the product worked
  • The customer did not understand the risks involved if the loan was terminated, i.e. the break costs
  • The customer did not understand that the bank could terminate the loan and the customer would still be liable for the break costs
  • The Interest Rate Swap was ‘over-hedged’, i.e. the amount of the hedge or its length was greater than the underlying loan, leading to greater break costs on termination

Is there a time limit to claim?

6 years from the date the Interest Rate Swap was sold. If you think you have a claim for interest rates swap mis-selling, seek our expert as soon as possible.
