However, the value of the. The pay leg is any swap leg from a standard interest rate swap. The pay leg may be absent for certain CMS products, with the premium paid upfront instead,

## A constant maturity swap (CMS) rate for a given tenor is referenced as a point on the Swap curve. A swap curve itself is a term structure wherein every point on the curve is the effective par swap rate for that tenor. This is analogous to a 3m LIBOR curve represents 3m forward rates for a given tenor.
