Roll over

To reinvest funds received from a maturing security in a new issue of the same or a similar security.

Roll Over

1. The act or practice of taking profits or other proceeds from investments and making other investments with them. It nearly always means that one is investing in more of the same security. For example, one may take dividends from a stock and buy more shares with it or may take coupon payments to buy more of the same bond issue. It is also called reinvesting. Colloquially, rolling over refers to reinvesting proceeds from one retirement account in another retirement account without causing a taxable event.

2. A loan that a borrower may renew upon maturity. This may happen when the borrower has only been making interest payments over the life of the loan. See also: Refinancing.
