The par/par methodology therefore allows an investor to be exposed only to the idiosyncrasies of the bond issuer rather than taking interest rate risk - when you receive LIBOR based cashflows rather than fixed cashflows, there is no interest rate risk. (There is a small residual interest rate risk due to the difference between the discount factors based on the government curve and those based on the swaps curve.)
