Inverse floating-rate note

A variable-rate security whose coupon rate increases as a benchmark interest rate declines.

Inverse Floating-Rate Note

A bond or other debt security with a variable coupon rate that changes in inverse proportion to some benchmark rate. For example, an inverse floating-rate note may be linked to LIBOR; as the LIBOR decreases, the coupon rate increases and vice versa. An inverse floating-rate note allows a bondholder to benefit from declining interest rates. It is also called an inverse floater.

Reverse floating rate notes (FRNs), or reverse floaters, are similar to traditional FRNs in that the investor profits from interest rates moving in a certain direction.
