Contingent swap

A swap that is only activated when rates reach a certain level or a specific event occurs. For example, drop-lock swaps only activate if rates or prices drop to a certain level or if a specified level over a benchmark is achieved. A swaption is a special type of contingent swap, whose value and exercise are usually contingent on an interest rate.
