Call Swaption

What is 'Call Swaption'

A type of option between two parties that can be exercised on a swap where the buyer of the swap has the right, but not obligation, to receive an agreed upon fixed interest rate. The buyer pays a premium for the right to swap at this fixed rate. Short for a call swap option, a call swaption can be used as a hedging tool to avoid risk if a bond issuer believes interest rates might decrease.

Explaining 'Call Swaption'

When a buyer feels it will be beneficial, he may enter into a call swaption, which will allow him to swap interest rates. The buyer of the option receives a fixed rate, compared to a put swaption where the buyer pays a fixed rate.
