Prime

1. In commercial banking, the best available interest rate under most circumstances. Generally speaking, only the most creditworthy customers receive the prime, but this is not always true. In any case, a prime serves as a benchmark against which other interest rates are compared. In this sense, it is also called the prime rate.

2. Describing the highest possible credit rating on a bond, either Aaa (for Moody's) or AAA (for S&P and Fitch).
