Chance/Brooks An Introduction to Derivatives and Risk Management, 8th ed.Ch. 12: 4 Definition of a swap n Swaps is a financial derivative in which 2 parties make series of payments to each other at specific dates. n While a forward contract is a single payment, a swap is a series of payments. u E.g. In some cases, a party would like to make a series of purchase, instead of a single purchase, from the other at fixed price at various date (different dates). n Exclusively customized, over-the-counter instruments.

Chance/Brooks An Introduction to Derivatives and Risk Management, 8th ed.Ch. 12: 5 Swaps & Forward contracts (Similarities) n Swaps are similar to forward contracts -fixed payment or receive a floating payment at a future date. n Both swaps and forward contracts require no upfront payments, and both are subject to default risk. Thus, swaps have zero value at the start

6
Chance/Brooks An Introduction to Derivatives and Risk Management, 8th ed.Ch. 12: 6 Swaps Vs. Forward contracts n Swaps u Both sides of the first payment are known. Also, for a swap, all of the fixed payments are the same. n Forward contracts u each contract would be priced separately and would have different fixed rates

7
Chance/Brooks An Introduction to Derivatives and Risk Management, 8th ed.Ch. 12: 7 Types of Swaps u Interest rate Swaps F Series of interest payments between two parties. F The two parties agree to exchange a series of interest payments in the same currency at the various settlement dates. F more widely used than currency and equity swaps, because nearly all businesses face some form of interest rate risk. F A plain vanilla swap (a.k.a. vanilla swap) is a swap in which on party pays a fixed rate & the other pays a floating rate

8
Chance/Brooks An Introduction to Derivatives and Risk Management, 8th ed.Ch. 12: 8 Interest rate Swaps F Interest rate swaps are the primary means of managing that risk (interest rates risk). F A company will typically use interest rate swaps to limit, or manage, its exposure to fluctuations in interest rates, or to obtain a marginally lower interest rate.

Chance/Brooks An Introduction to Derivatives and Risk Management, 8th ed.Ch. 12: 10 Types of swaps Currency Swaps u Involves the exchange of principal and interest in one currency for the same in another currency. u E.g. Supposed Malaysian based company needs to acquired Japanese Yen and a Japanese based company needs to acquire Malaysian Ringgit. These 2 companies could arrange to swap currencies by establishing an interest rate, an agreed upon amount and maturity date of exchange. u Often combined with interest rate swaps.

11
Chance/BrooksAn Introduction to Derivatives and Risk Management, 8th ed.Ch. 12: 11 Currency Swaps (continued) u Currency Swap Strategies F A typical case is a firm borrowing in one currency and wanting to borrow in another. See Figure 12.8, p. 432 for Reston-GSI example. Reston could get a better rate due to its familiarity to GSI and also due to credit risk. Figure 12.8, p. 432Figure 12.8, p. 432 F Also a currency swap be used to convert a stream of foreign cash flows. This type of swap would probably have no exchange of notional principals.
