Amortizing Swaption

Amortizing Swaption

An option in which the underlying asset is an interest rate swap with a notional amount (the theoretical amount over which the interest rate is calculated) gradually decreases (or is "amortized") over time. The amount by which it decreases is usually tied to repayment on a loan or other liability.
