Both parties to a TRS contract are concerned with interest rate risk. Total Return Receivers payments are LIBOR- an agreed spread. An increase in LIBOR during the agreement increases payments to the payer while reducing LIBOR reduces payments to the payer. The risk of interest rates is higher on the beneficiaries` side and they can hedge the risk by interest rate derivatives such as futures contracts. A total return swap is a swap agreement in which one party makes payments on the basis of a fixed or variable fixed rate, while the other makes payments based on the performance of an underlying asset, including both the income it generates and the potential capital gains. Total return swaps are usually a stock market index, a basket of loans or bonds for the base asset called the benchmark. The asset belongs to the party receiving the payment of the rate. Each contracting party submits these notifications as soon as possible, but under no circumstances at the latest five (5) working days (subject to mutual agreement) renewal after the execution of this notification, for applications to FERC for the approval of transactions under this agreement (including the TRS agreement, the transition services agreement and the service contract) provided for in Section 203 of the VPA.

However, in recent years, total return swaps have become increasingly popular due to the enhanced regulatory control that followed the alleged manipulation of credit default Swapscredit Default SwapA Credit Default SwapA (CDS) a type of credit derivative that offers the buyer protection against default and other risks. The buyer of a CDS makes regular payments to the seller until the loan`s maturity date. In the agreement, the seller agrees that the seller will pay the buyer all premiums and interest (CDS) in the event of the debtor`s delay. One of the advantages of Total Return Swaps is operational efficiency.

In a TRS agreement, the total return recipient is not required to process interest recoveries, accounts, payment calculations and reports required for the transfer of ownership. The owner retains ownership of the asset and the beneficiary is not required to handle the asset transfer process. The expiry date of the TRS agreement and payment dates are agreed by both parties.
