GPM

ISO 4217 code for the German papiermark. It was introduced in 1914, when the mark's peg to gold was abandoned. The papiermark is strongly associated with hyperinflation as prices rose exponentially following World War I. In 1924, it was replaced by the Rentenmark at a ratio of 1 trillion to one.

Graduated Payment Mortgage (GPM)

A mortgage on which the payment rises by a constant percent for a specified number of periods, after which it becomes fully-amortizing.

As an example, the payment might increase by 7.5% every 12 months for 60 months, after which it is constant for the remaining term. GPMs had a brief flurry in the 1980s but then largely disappeared.
