practical purpose for currency swap?
If i wanted to buy a building in Europe or simply want to gain exposure to the EUR, i could do a currency swap with USD…. but I can also just buy EUR spot , right? Or if I wanted to lock in a rate I could just buy EUR fwd. So what is the benefit of currency swap and can you give an example?
