Tool exchanged for money (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

loot

Here is my best explanation:

'money' is the definition.

(loot is a kind of money)

'tool exchanged' is the subsidiary indication.

'exchanged' indicates an anagram.

'tool' with letters rearranged gives 'loot'.

'for' is the link.

(Other definitions for loot that I've seen before include "Stolen property", "Booty, plunder", "Stolen goods", "Plunder and ransack", "Tool found among plunder", "Swag, booty", "Pillage; money", "Ill-gotten gains", "Tool for plundering" and "Booty; sack".)
