Asset_Swap

*Asset Swap* is a child type of Swap that represents a bond-based asset swap, whereby some specific bond and its coupons are exchanged between two counterparties.

The exact structure of the exchange depends on the swap's Asset Swap::Structure

In formal terms:

Each floating ibor-linked payment equals:

*N(I+s)Δt*

where *I* is the realized value of the ibor rate index Ibor Rate at the begining of each floating coupon period.

Further on, *s* is the entry in *Spread* and *Δt* is the length of the respective accrual period.

*N* refers to the applicable notional, which depending on an entry of type Asset Swap::Structure may equal either the bond's notional or the bond's market price at swap's inception.

The coupon denomination currency is assumed to be that of the index.
