- Effect on one single bond (MTM) are opposed

- Balance sheets are a combination of long bond and short bond

- A > L: Temporary positive as long as rates fall. However, in the long

run, low interest rates are bad, as it presses margins and returns on

invested equity

- A < L: Good as soon as rates rise. However, costly if rates curve is

positively sloped
