Question

- Consider a $80 million, 1-year tenor, semiannual-pay floating-rate equity swap initiated when the equity index is 1428 and 180-day LIBOR is 4.2%. After 90 days the index is at 1476, 90-day LIBOR is 4.5% and 270-day LIBOR is 4.7%. What is the value of the swap to the floating-rate payer?

A) -$1,917,600. C) $1,799,088.

B) $1,917,600. D) $1,799,088.

Answer #1

**The answer is B) $1,917,600**

For semi annual pay floating equity swap, the payment is every 180 days.

1.021 = 1+0.021 (180 day libor rate 0.042/2=0.021 since it is semi annual)

1.01125= 1+0.01125 (90 day libor rate 0.045/4=0.01125, 360/90=4)

initial equity index/ 90 day index= 1476/1428

= 1.03361 * 80 million

=$ 82688800

The present value of the floating rate side after 90 days = 1.021/1.01125 = 1.00964

= 1.00964*80 million

= $ 80771200

The value of swap to the floating rate payer= $82688800- $80771200

= $1917600

So, **the correct option is B) $1,917,600**

Consider a $30 million notional amount interest rate swap with a
fixed rate of 7%, paid quarterly on a 90/360 day count convention.
The first floating payment is set at 7.2%.
Calculate the first net payment and identify whether the party
paying fixed or the party paying floating makes the payment.
Since one party knows in advance that they will be making a
payment 90 from now (effectively a guaranteed loss at the 90-day
mark, since swap contracts do not...
