SWAPS OVERVIEW
A swap connotes what the name applies: two or more parties swapping securities in a financial deal.
 
Swaps can come in many forms. Some are referred to as derivatives because their value can be derived from something else. They’re often used to hedge a commercial risk.
 
There are interest rate swaps, commodity swaps, currency swaps, equity swaps, credit default swaps, cross-currency swaps, forwards contracts and options to engage in swaps. The ceiling on swaps may only be curtailed by the imagination of the industry.
 
The financial crisis caused some to call for the regulation of derivatives. Under Dodd-Frank, the SEC was given jurisdiction over securities-based swaps and the CFTC oversees commodities-based and other swaps.
 
This channel looks only at CFTC oversight of swaps.
