Early Amortization

Early Amortization

Early repayment of an asset-backed security, usually occurring when something goes wrong. Most commonly, if there are more than a certain number of defaults on the assets (such as mortgages) underlying the security, early amortization occurs. It is intended to reduce the risk to the investor and therefore to entice buyers.
