equity index swap, according to (my interpretation of) Pravin

Monitor the index (say spx) value now and 12M later. If that return is, say, 22%, then I pay you 22% of notional, on that future date.

Today, however, you pay me a fixed x% of the notional.

So the contract always references some index.
