EUR-USD swap quote

Hi all. 

Background: US company needs to borrow GBP 30m by borrowing USD in home country by USD36m and then swap the USD36m to GPB 30m. The EUR-USD Swap is quoted at -15 basis point and the swap is a four -year semi annual swap where both USD and GBP reference rate are based on six month LIBOR. 

i am quite confused about the term “EUR-USD swap”. What does it mean? I cant distinguish this -15 basis point should be related to GBP interest on swap payment or USD interest swap receipt? Why EUR matters in this question?

Thanks a lot for your great help!!!!!

You’ve made it this far, and you know what it takes to pass. Don’t be fooled by false promises and unrealistic claims. Schweser’s study packages give you the proven study tools and expert instruction you need to finish the job.

You have USD, GBP, and EUR.

I suspect that you really want only two of those.

Please edit your original post, or post a revised version that has only two currencies.

The question is extracted from the book. I am thinking whether the EUR-USD swap means Eurodollar swap.
