Forward rate agreement: An over-the-counter, bilateral forward contract setting a fixed rate of interest, or currency exchange rate, to be paid/received on an obligation beginning at a future start date. An FRA differs from a swap in that payment is made only once, at maturity - a single payment (the differential between the fixed and variable rates).
