Finance Glossary

Just call us Bond. Amortized bond.

Over 700 finance terms, Shmooped to perfection.

Callable

Definition:

Refers to bonds. The paper may say it'll pay 9% for 30 years but in the fine print it notes that the bond is callable in 3 years at 102 cents on the dollar. Oh well. It woulda been nice.
