Interest rate swap

An 

Exchange

 of 

Interest

 payments on a specific 

Principal

 amount. This is a counterparty agreement, and so can be standardized to the requirements of the parties involved. An 

Interest rate swap

 usually involves just two parties, but occasionally involves more. Often, an 

Interest rate swap

 involves exchanging a fixed amount per payment period for a payment that is not fixed (the floating side of the 

Swap

 would usually be linked to another 

Interest

 rate, often the LIBOR). In an 

Interest

 rate swap, the 

Principal

 amount is never exchanged, it is just a 

Notional principal amount

. Also, on a 

Payment date

, it is normally the case that only the difference between the two payment amounts is turned over to the 

Party

 that is entitled to it, as opposed to exchanging the 

Full

 interest amounts. Thus, an 

Interest rate swap

 usually involves very little 

Cash

 outlay.
