What is a floating rate note?

A floating rate note (FRN) is an intermediate- or long-term bond with a floating interest rate. FRNs are issued in the Eurocurrency markets (where they originated) and in most other major capital markets worldwide. FRNs provide an alternative to traditional bonds with their fixed interest rates, reallocating the risks of interest rate movements between the parties.
