Anticipated holding period

The period of time an individual expects to hold an asset.

Anticipated Holding Period

In a long position, the period of time during which one expects to own a security or other asset. The anticipated holding period is important to calculating the position's expected return. One may also determine the anticipated holding period for tax purposes because long-term investments are not taxed as heavily as short-term ones. See also: HPR
