DAG fights for you to get the best deal from your bank…

Most borrowers get their only hedging advice from the bank selling them the hedge.  This is a conflict of interest in two ways:

A.    A bank makes the most money from getting the borrower to buy the biggest, longest swap.  Maybe that’s not the right swap for you.

B.    They’re not going to help you negotiate price.  A dollar in your pocket means a dollar from theirs.

DAG is an independent consulting firm.  We help clients design, negotiate and implement(1) interest rate swaps and other hedging programs.  Just as a good lawyer negotiates the best contract terms for you, we help you negotiate the best swap terms.

We handle interest rate, foreign currency and commodities hedging.  We also provide valuation and accounting support for FASB 133/157, GASB 53, and Dodd-Frank.

DAG was formed by banking industry veterans to provide independent and objective advice to borrowers and users of swaps and derivatives.
