An interest rate swaption is an option that provides the borrower with the right but not the obligation to enter into an interest rate swap on an agreed date(s) in the future on terms protected by the swaption.
An interest rate collar is an option used to hedge exposure to interest rate moves. It protects a borrower against rising rates and establishes a floor on declining rates through the purchase of an interest rate cap and the simultaneous sale of an interest rate floor.
An FX collar involves buying a cap and selling a floor on the same currencies with the same expiration date. The two options set the upper and lower strike prices.
An interest rate swap and floor is a combination of an interest rate swap with the purchase of an interest rate floor.
A participating interest rate swap is a derivative instrument that combines an interest rate swap with an interest rate cap. A portion of the debt is hedged with a swap and the remainder with a cap.
