2 Example: Plain Vanilla Foreign Currency Swap
Image of page 2
3 A Plain Vanilla Foreign Currency Swap Plain vanilla foreign currency swap has 3 steps: A gives M£50 to B and gets M$72.5 in return. For 7 years, A makes semiannual interest payments in dollars and B in pounds. Finally, A returns M$72.5 and B returns M£50. Value of swap to counterparty B is V (0) = B (0) - S (0) B £ (0) where B (0) is PV of dollar interest payments and principal payment at maturity received by party B, B £ (0) is PV in pounds of such payments made by B, and S (0) is dollar/sterling spot exchange rate at t=0.

4 Example: Dollar - Euro Swap Party A gives M$10 to B, gets M €8.4. The current exchange rate is 0.8395 $/ €. Simple interest is paid semiannually in the currency of the received principal. All relevant data and calculations are provided in the table to the left. We add up the sum of discounted cash flows in each currency, then we convert to the currency in which we want to express the value. Do not forget that principal exchanges hands! Value to the party receiving dollars = $9965681.25 - $10020296.80 = -$54615.55. Is this calculation accurate? Did we miss anything?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
