Swaps - Currency Swaps

Currency swaps were first used in the 1970s. Along with interest rate, equity and commodity swaps, these instruments have changed the face of finance. At the surface level, they have allowed risks to be managed and capital markets accessed in ways that were unimaginable before. At a deeper level, they facilitate the understanding and measurement of risks across enterprises so that those enterprises can operate more effectively.

 

In this course, we will describe the different types of currency swaps and explain how they are priced.
