reverse swap


The process of exchanging one type of bond for another type in order to capitalize on changes in the yield curve. This type of action results in the bond portfolio being reverted back to its original position. Most investors still perform this action in order to receive a short profit and then allow the original bond to mature and possibly return another profit.
