Yield Curve Note
A debt security structured so that its yield increases when prevailing interest rates decrease and declines when these interest rates increase. Because yield curve notes are the opposite of most other debt securities, investors use them to hedge against possible changes in interest rates that might be unfavorable to their other investments.
