Held-to-Maturity Securities

(redirected from Held to Maturity Security)

Held-to-Maturity Securities

Securities, especially debt securities, which an investor owns until they mature and therefore cease to exist. This entitles the holder to all coupon and other payments, as well as reimbursement for the principal amount. Because these securities are held until maturity, investors generally do not need to care about fluctuations in their prices that occur in the meantime.
