(redirected from Pay-Ups)


1. A swap for a security with a higher yield. For example, an investor may swap a bond with a certain face value and coupon for another bond with an equal face value but a higher coupon. One refers to the extra funds the investor yields from the higher coupon as a payup.

2. The additional money an investor needs in order to buy a security with a higher market value. For example, an investor may need payup money if he/she owns a bond, but wishes to buy another bond with a higher coupon rate.


Additional funds required when an investor swaps a current holding for higher-value securities. For example, a person might swap low-interest bonds for higher-coupon bonds of equal face value but of higher market value.
