Mixed Swap

What is Mixed Swap?

Mixed Swap meaning A mixed swap is a swap that has characteristics of both a swap and a security-based swap. For example, a credit default swap on a single firm that includes contingencies based on the price of a commodity, would be considered a mixed swap. Mixed swaps are subject to joint oversight by the CFTC and the SEC. See 7 U.S.C. §1a(47)(D).
