Summary of Accounting Policies
Description of business
Salomon Swapco Inc is a wholly-owned subsidiary of
SBHC, itself a wholly-owned subsidiary of Salomon Inc.
Swapco enters into a broad range of derivative
transactions, including swaps and options on interest
rates, currencies and equities, with creditworthy
counterparties around the world. All of Swapco's
derivative transactions are hedged with offsetting trades
with SBHC, leaving Swapco with no market risk.
Resulting credit exposure which Swapco may have to
SBHC is more than fully collateralized by SBHC. The
overcollateralization is designed to protect Swapco from
possible adverse market movements during a termination
period. At September 30, 1996, Swapco's $232 million
net derivative receivable from SBHC was collateralized
with cash and securities with a market value of $527
million. Swapco has received credit ratings of Aaa from
Moody's Investors Service, AAAt from Standard &
Poor's Corporation, and AAA from Fitch Investors

Investment securities
Under its operating guidelines, Swapco may invest in
U.S. Treasury and Agencies and other triple-A rated debt
securities. These positions are recorded at their market
value on a trade date basis. Swapco has entered into
interest rate swap agreements with SBHC under which
Swapco pays the total return on the investment securities
which it owns and receives the daily federal funds rate of
interest. These hedge swaps effectively protect Swapco
from changes in the market value of its investment
securities. The market value of the hedge swaps was
$1.2 million (in favor of SBHC) at September 30, 1996,
and is included in the caption SBHC derivative
Derivative receivables and payables

mark-to-market amounts owed to (or by) Swapco from

customer transaction is

SBHC. Derivative transactions are recorded on trade
date and are valued at mid-market prices. Derivative
receivables and payables also include cash collateral
advanced to or by Swapco under derivative master
netting agreements. Derivative receivables and payables
do not include the value of securities pledged to or by
Prepaid expenses and other assets
Prepaid expenses and other assets include, primarily, the
unamortized portion of sales commissions which
Swapco, up to September 30, 1994, paid to affiliated
companies when trades were consummated. Swapco
recognizes these payments as expense over the life of the
transactions involved.
Swapco is a registered service mark of Salomon Swapco Inc.
