Matching Strategy

Matching Strategy

An immunization strategy in which one matches the duration of assets in a portfolio to the duration of the liabilities. Duration is the number of years until the investor receives the present value of all income from a bond (including interest and principal), and is used to gauge a bond's sensitivity to interest rate changes. A matching strategy is intended to reduce the portfolio's sensitivity to interest rates in order to reduce the risk of loss to the holder.
