Basis Swaps

A basis swap is an interest rate swap where there is an exchange of floating rate payments in the same or different currencies. It is a vital mechanism for the management of liability exposure.

Euro/USD basis constitutes the bulk of our transactions, but we also offer markets in cable, Australian dollars, Swiss francs, yen and the Scandinavian currencies.
