LADDER Definition

Bookmark and Share

LADDER is a form of diversification in which investments with widely varying maturities are held within an invest­ment portfolio. Spreading investments over a range of maturities reduces interest rate risk on reinvestment by averaging out interest rate cycles. This strategy assures a continuous cash flow over time with some potential sacrifice of optimum total return.
