Dollar Safety Margin
In a contingent immunization strategy, the dollar amount of the return at which the contingent immunization takes place. In a contingent immunization strategy, an asset manager or investor makes investments at varying risks 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. The dollar amount of that return is the dollar safety margin.
