swap – in finance

A swap in financial terms has the same meaning as in normal English – i.e. exchanging one thing for another. Usually it means exchanging the liabilities/returns of one asset for another. For example, a currency swap might involve swapping the interest and currency risk on a sterling deposit for an equivalent deposit in US dollars. Or it might just involve swapping the interest payments.
