Swap Advisory Services



We specializes in structuring, modifying, and terminating interest-rate swaps, option-based features of interest rate swaps, and related hedging products, such as caps and floors. This highly technical area requires specialized systems and knowledge. We demystify the complexities of swaps and help our clients understand the risks and market opportunities with our Swap Advisory Services.

How we make a difference:

Found an innovative way to overcome obstacles and achieve a swap restructuring to accomplish the client’s objectives while accommodating the dealer’s credit constraints.

Framed options and assisted with the early termination of numerous swaps affected by a defaulting counterparty.
Discovered and corrected swap structuring errors, which improved the hedging performance and avoided critical cash flow shortfalls in a deal with highly constrained repayment ability.
