Contingent immunization

(redirected from Contingent Immunization Strategy)

Contingent immunization

An arrangement in which the money manager pursues an active bond portfolio strategy until an adverse investment experience drives the then-available potential return down to the safety net level. When that point is reached, the money manager is obligated to pursue an immunization strategy to lock in the safety-net level return.

Contingent Immunization

An investment strategy in which an asset manager or investor makes investments of varying risk until something goes wrong. When an investment suffers a loss and brings the portfolio down to some pre-defined return, the asset manager or investor begins making low- or no-risk investments that guarantee that same, pre-defined return. A contingent immunization strategy opens an investor up to large returns while minimizing losses as much as possible.
