Current Price GBP 100 Current Exchange Rate EUR/GBP.6503 Competitor in France Inflation Rate2% p.a. Current PriceEUR At Year End If PPP held UK Price GBP 104 (100 x 1.04) French Price EUR ( x 1.02) Therefore Exchange Rate 104 = But if rate has moved to EUR/GBP.6300 then UK Price of GBP 104 = EUR French price of EUR Will they sell any goods?

copyright anbirts15 Swaps
copyright anbirts16 FX SWAP The Spot Purchase and Forward Sale of Currency. The Two Transactions are Executed Simultaneously and are based off the Same Spot Rate
copyright anbirts17 FX Swap Rates As with a forward contract the Bank will quote a spot and a forward rate for both sides of the market GBP/CAD Month Points 14 12
copyright anbirts18 FX SWAP RATES However it is only the Forward Points representing the differential in interest rates between the two currencies that will affect the swap. The forward points to be used will be determined by the forward transaction in the Swap. The Same Spot Rate will be used for both the purchase and sale of the currency
copyright anbirts19 EXAMPLE Your Canadian subsidiary tells you that it wishes to borrow Canadian dollars for one month (30 days). Their local bank will lend at 5.5% pa. Your GBP interest cost is 6% pa. Is it cheaper for the subsidiary to borrow from you or from the bank?
copyright anbirts20 THE SWAP CALCULATION 1 Questions to ask 1 What will it cost in CAD? 2 In the Swap, what side will we be on in the forward? (this will determine the spot rate to use) 3 Therefore how many GBP do we need to borrow today to give CAD 3,000,000? 4 Therefore how many GBP will we have to pay back at 6.0% in the future? 5 At the forward rate, how many CAD will be needed? 6 Is this more or less than borrowing CAD directly?
copyright anbirts21 THE SWAP CALCULATION 2 Borrowing CAD directly from the local bank will cost 3,000,000 x.055 x 30/365 = 13,561.64
copyright anbirts22 THE SWAP CALCULATION 3 Spot Day Points month forward outright Today At spot of Buy CAD 3,000, Sell GBP 1,281, ,281,886.94x.06x30/365 = 6, Forward At forward of Sell CAD 3,013, Buy GBP 1,288,208.57
copyright anbirts23 ANSWER Borrow CAD Direct at 5.5% Cost CAD 13, Borrow CAD via the swap Cost CAD 13, So, on financial basis, do the swap Effective interest rate in CAD 13, x 365/30 = 5.37% 3,000,000
copyright anbirts24 USES OF THE SWAP Can be used to invest or borrow in a foreign currency for a specified period of time without creating an fx exposure concentrate funds from a number of different currencies into one currency to obtain better rates without creating an fx exposure offset surplus funds in one currency against deficit in another currency for a specified period of time without creating an fx exposure

copyright anbirts33 Financial Futures Example Action Today Today in the Futures Market: Buy one December contract at 98.1 ( %) Note: at todays rate of 2 % USD 1,000,000 would earn 1,000,000 x.02 x 90/360 = 5,000
copyright anbirts34 Financial Futures Example Action on 21st November In cash market, arrange three month deposit of USD at current rate of 1.5 % 1,000,000 x.015 x 90/360 = 3,750 This equals a loss of 1,250 over 2% rate Sell the future for 98.6 ( )
copyright anbirts35 Financial Futures Example Net Result 1,000,000 x.015 x 90/360 = 3,750 Bought Future at Sold Future at Gain 50 basis points At USD 25 per tick =1,250 = 5,000
copyright anbirts36 Financial Futures Example Question? Why have we managed a perfect hedge? i.e. ended up with USD 1,005,000 at end of deposit? Note: the cash price moved from 2 to 1.5 A movement of 50 basis points The futures price also moved by 50 basis points exactly offsetting the loss on the cash market
copyright anbirts37 Financial Futures Example Will this always be so? No Cash market Futures market Today Expiry Basis
copyright anbirts38 Financial Futures Example So what if held to expiry? Cash market = 1.5 therefore futures price would be But bought at Gain 40 basis points Therefore net result = 40 x 25 = 1,000 Plus interest earned at 1.5 = 3,750 Total 4,750 So effective interest = 4,750/1,000,000 x 360/90 x 100 = 1.9%
