Dated Date

Definition:

The date at which interest begins to accrue on a fixed-income security. Investors who purchase a fixed-income security between interest payment dates must also pay the seller or issuer any interest that has accrued from the dated date to the purchase date, or settlement date, in addition to the face value.

If the fixed-income security's date of issuance is the same as the dated date, the dated date is also the issue date.
