The Flipper with Guaranteed Flip is a floating-to-fixed rate advance. It provides the member a period (typically one to three years) of sub-LIBOR* funding and the potential for market-rally participation. At the end of the floating-rate period, the advance will convert (flip) into a fixed-rate advance, at a predetermined rate, until maturity.
