Abstract

The purpose of this article is to investigate the determinants of interest rate swap spreads in Japan. Four determinants of swap spreads  --  TED spread, corporate bond spread, interest rate and the slope of yield curve  --  are chosen. The swap spreads of 2 years through 4 years are mostly influenced by TED spread, interest rate and slope. The swap spread of 5 years is mostly decided by corporate bond spread and slope. The swap spreads of 7 years and 10 years are mostly affected by corporate bond spread.
