Subordinated

Describing a class of security that, in the event of liquidation, is prioritized lower than other classes of security.

Should the issuer be liquidated, all secured bonds and debts must be repaid before the subordinated security is repaid. A subordinated security carries higher risk but also pays higher returns than other classes. See also: Junior Debt.
