Swaps - Asset Swaps - An Introduction

Asset swap is a generic term for the repackaging of an interest-bearing security using one or more interest rate swaps. The asset swap adds value for investors because it allows the repackaging of bonds issued under different market conditions, giving them par prices and floating rate coupons more or less at the current market rate. The result is a synthetic security that presents the characteristics uniquely sought by the investor.

 

In this course, we will explain the structure of asset swaps and outline some of their uses and applications.
