The interest rate swaps market has experienced tremendous growth since what is commonly regarded as the rst swap was executed in In that year Salomon Brothers intermediated a cross-currency swap between the World Bank and IBM in a transaction that at the time was unique and provided considerable advantage to both counterparties. The growth in the market since then manifests itself not only in the vast increase in the notional outstanding of interest rate swaps but also in the varied users and uses of swaps. The purpose of this chapter is to provide a broad overview of the swaps market. We will focus on products and conventions in the market. Most discussions on swaps start with some analysis of the so-called comparative advantage argument: one counterparty has a relative advantage borrowing on, say, a xed rate basis and another has a relative advantage borrowing on a oating rate basis. The argument then goes that it makes sense for these two guys to borrow funds in their relatively advantaged manner, then get together and swap their cash ows, exchanging xed cash ows for oating ones, and vice versa, should they actually prefer to raise funds in their nonadvantaged manner.
