The most common and simplest swap is a “plain vanilla” interest rate swap. In this swap, Part A agrees to pay Part B a pre-defined fixed interest rate for a fictitious amount of capital on specified dates for a specified period. At the same time, Part B undertakes to make payments on the basis of a variable interest rate to Part A, on the same fictitious principle, on the same dates indicated for the same period indicated. In a simple vanilla swap, both cash flows are paid in the same currency. Reported payment data is called billing dates and interim periods are called clearing periods. As swaps are tailored contracts, interest payments can be made annually, quarterly, monthly or at another interval set by the parties. For example, Company C, a U.S. company, and Company D, a European company, enter into a five-year currency exchange for $50 million. Suppose the exchange rate is at that time at $1.25 per euro (z.B. the dollar is worth 0.80 euro). First, companies will exchange contractors.
So company C pays $50 million and company D 40 million euros. This meets the needs of each company in funds denominated in a different currency (which is the reason for the swap). The company must pay interest in DOLLARS while generating revenue in GBP. However, it is exposed to risk resulting from the fluctuation of the usd/GBP exchange rate. The entity can use an EN/GBP currency swe-swet to guard against such a risk. If the company sells $50 million worth of goods in the U.K. and the exchange rate drops from $1.23 to $1.1, the company`s revenue will increase from $61.5 million to $61 million. To protect against such a risk (the DOLLAR depreciates relative to the GBP), the company may use a USD/GBP swap. The swap seller agrees to give the company $61.5 million for $50 million, regardless of the actual exchange rate. The transaction can only take place if the entity and the swap seller have opposing views on whether the USD/GBP exchange rate is revalued or devalued. 1.

Advance receivables, including exchange-traded futures, futures and exchange contracts, allow holders to exchange financial flows related to different debt securities, which are also denominated in different currencies. For example, a U.S. variable rate mortgage operating in the U.K. can exchange a USD-denominated fixed-rate loan for a GBP-denominated variable rate loan. Other examples of hybrids are the exchange of a USD-denominated variable rate loan for a variable rate loan on JPY.
Unlike most standardized options and futures, swaps are not exchange-traded instruments. Instead, swap contracts are bespoke contracts negotiated between private parties on the over-the-counter market. Businesses and financial institutions dominate the swap market, and few (if at all) individuals participate. Because swaps take place in the over-the-counter market, there is always a risk of a counterparty defaulting. As with interest rate swaps, payments are effectively reduced against each other relative to the exchange rate that prevailed at the time. If the one-year exchange rate is $1.40 per euro, the payment by Company C is $1,960,000 and the payment of Company D would be $4,125,000. In practice, Company D would have the net difference of $2,165,000 ($4,125,000 – $1,960,000) to Company C. To keep it simple, we say that they make these payments every year, starting one year from the exchange of capital.
