The fixed-rate stream does not change for the duration of the swap, while the floating rate stream changes periodically over the duration of the swap as its benchmark interest rate, often LIBOR, changes in accordance with market conditions. Two parties, called counterparties, enter into such transactions to reduce their exposure to changes in interest rates or to attempt to profit from changes in interest rates.
