Sample text

Imagine that Boris would prefer a fixed rate and Chloe would prefer a floater. ” That cash flow—$60,000 flowing once a year for 10 years—constitutes the fixed part of the swap, known as the fixed leg. ” That’s the floating part, or floating leg. Boris and Chloe have now executed a swap, the proceeds from which they will use to pay their respective loans, effectively converting those loans between fixed and floating. It’s as if Boris agrees to make Chloe’s loan payments and Chloe agrees to make his, as in Figure 4-2.

Notice that ZED is trading at $62 upon expiration (or “expiry,” as it is sometimes known). Take a look at the options, and consider their payoff, or value at expiration. Remember, they are call options granting the right to buy ZED at the strike price. Now, cZED60 lets the holder buy for $60 what otherwise would cost $62, so it must be worth $2. An option that pays off upon exercise like this is said to be in the money (ITM). Our cZED64, in contrast, lets the holder buy for $64 what otherwise costs $62.

2 But behind all the bells and whistles are those swapped cash flows, each sometimes known as a coupon, another term borrowed from the old days of fixed income. And each coupon period, it turns out, is really just a forward contract in disguise. It’s a forward with an underlier of money, with an interest rate for a delivery price, whose spot rate is given by an index. We can also view a swap as two bonds, one with a fixed coupon and the other floating, with the bond cash flows exchanged. This is, in fact, the simpler way to view a swap, and one we’ll use ourselves when we price a swap later on.
