What is CURRENCY WARRANT?

A longdated currency OPTION (i.e., three to five years) that is typically attached to a BOND (as a BOND WITH WARRANTS). The warrant, which can be detached and traded separately, is generally denominated in a currency that is different from the currency of underlying bond issue and is included to give the issuer a lower overall cost of funding.
