ASSET BACKED SECURITY is a debt instrument collateralized by credit card receivables, auto loans or other assets and securitized by a bank or financial institution. To reduce the possibility of a disruption in principal and interest payments, the cash flow from these assets is enhanced by a variety of methods including letter of credit support, insurance, overcollateralization and excess interest.

DISCOUNT RATE, generally, it is a rate of return (cost of capital) used to convert a monetary sum, payable or receivable in the future, into present value. In finance, it is the interest rate that the Federal Reserve of the U.S. Government charges a U.S. bank to borrow funds when a bank is temporarily short of funds. Collateral is necessary to borrow, and such borrowing is quite limited because the Fed views it as a privilege to be used to meet short-term liquidity needs, and not a device to increase earnings.
