Duration gap

• Duration Gap = Duration of the assets - Duration of the Liabilities. A positive duration gap means that the duration of assets is greater than the duration of the liabilities. When interest rates increase, all securities lose value, and the securities with longer durations will lose even more value. Hence, when interest rates increase, banks with positive duration gaps will lose value.
