    3 and 5 year fixed rate thread

    Prime fodder for a while new thread. Sounds like a really great strategy you have thought through which would be interesting to explore :) As for the question. Fixing five years. Probably wouldn't fix all, but good risk management strategy for potential rate increases, if you did some.
