Bond- an 'IOU' in which an investor agrees to loan money to a company or government in exchange for a predetermined interest rate. Maturity- The final payment date of a loan or other financial instrument at which all interest and principal is due to be paid. Callability- Feature of a security that allows the issuer to redeem the security prior to maturity by calling it in, or forcing the holder to sell it back. Accrued interest- The interest that has accumulated since the principle investment, or since the previous interest payment if there has been one already.
When redeeming a bond, there are 3 primary types of call features: Optional Redemption- allows the issuer, at its option, to redeem the bonds. Many municipal bonds, for example, have optional call features that issuers may exercise after a period of years, often ten years. Sinking Fund Redemption- requires the issuer to regularly set aside money for the redemption of the bonds before maturity. Extraordinary Redemption- allows the issuer to call its bonds before maturity if certain specified events occur, such as the project for which the bond was issued to finance has been damaged or destroyed.
