# Pricing a Brazilian PRE/DI Swap

## D. L. Chertok November 8, 2012

Summary
A Brazilian swap is an exchange-guaranteed contract between two counterparties where at maturity both sides exchange netted payments accrued according to different schedules.

Mathematical formulation

At inception, counterparties of a Brazilian PRE/DI swap agree to exchange payments at maturity [1]. The xed, or PRE side, pays the contract notional amount: = N (t0 )AF (t0 , t; rP RE (t0 , T )) , n AF (t0 , t; rP RE (t0 , T )) = [1 + rP RE (t0 , T )] 252 , N (T, T ; rP RE (t0 , T )) = Ncontract , where: t T t0 rP RE (t0 , T ) N (t, T ; rP RE (t0 , T )) N (t0 ) AF (t0 , t; rP RE (t0 , T )) n Ncontract current time; t [t0 ; T ], swap maturity ( in days ), effective date, futures-based rate ( on the PRE side ) quoted from t0 to T , notional at t, notional at inception, accrual factor from t0 to t determined by the contract rate rP RE (t0 , T ), number of business days between t0 and t ( accrual days ), contract notional payable at T . N (t, T ; rP RE (t0 , T )) (1.1) (1.2) (1.3)

The oating, or DI, side pays the accrued amount based on the notional amount on effective date and the daily average overnight interest rate: N t, T ; {rDI (ti )}K i=0 AF t0 , t; {rDI (ti )}K i=0 where: K rDI (ti ) number of business days between t0 and T , average daily overnight rate at ti [t0 ; tK = T ] , i = 0, K. = = N (t0 )AF t0 , t; {rDI (ti )}K i=0 ,

The present value of the PRE side is the current notional accrued at the contract PRE rate to maturity and then discounted back to the valuation date: P VP RE (t) = N (t, T ; rP RE (t0 , T )) AF (t, T ; rP RE (t0 , T )) . AF (t, T ; rP RE (t, T )) (1.6) (1.7) The present value of the DI side is simply the current notional ( accrued at the actual realized DI rate from effective date to today ): P VDI (t) = N (t, T ; rDI (t0 , T )) . (1.8)

The current present value of the swap is the difference between the two sides: P Vswap (t) = (P VDI (t) P VP RE (t)) IP ayP RE , (1.9)

where IP ayP RE is the pay xed indicator, i.e., IP ayP RE = 1, 1, if the swap pays PRE, if the swap pays DI. (1.10)

Example

We consider a pay-PRE Brazilian swap tied to the ODF7 future maturing on 1/2/2017 on the PRE side. The swap was entered into at the PRE rate of 11.85% effective on 3/20/2007, rst accrued interest on 3/21/2007, and was priced on 3/27/2007. The results are presented in Table 2. Table 1 reects the PRE and DI rate histories respectively.
