rate anticipation swap


Swap of bonds that have different maturity dates, usually done to take advantage of expected changes in interest rates. For example, an investor who thought that interest rates were about to fall would swap short-term bonds for long-term bonds because in this scenario long-term bonds would experience a greater increase in value.
