MATURITY VALUE, in securities, is the amount that will be received at the time a security is redeemed at its maturity. For most securities, maturity value equals par value; in insurance, it is the amount payable under a whole life insurance policy if the insured person lives to the last age on the mortality table on which the values of the contract were based.

TAXABLE EQUIVALENT YIELD is the yield that must be received on a taxable security to provide the holder with the same after-tax return as that earned on a tax-exempt bond or preferred stock.
