In the 2008 to 2013 period, Harvard suffered huge losses due to their exposure to interest rate swaps which were used to swap floating for fixed interest rates. Things went downhill when the rates started to collapse and Harvard received a massive margin call on the swaps.

To limit its exposure to the interest rate swaps, Harvard took offsetting swaps, paying a huge premium to the other party. Harvard’s total losses look something like this…

Loss to Harvard = Loss of value of extant interest rate swaps + Premium of Offsetting Swaps + Penalty / charges          payable to the swap issuing entities (JP Morgan and Morgan Stanley)
