weighted average coupon


Mortgage backed securities (MBS) use weighted average coupon (WAC) to determine the gross interest rates of multiple mortgages that underline the MBS. The WAC represents the average interest rate of different pools of mortgages with varying interest rates. The original WAC may be different than the present WAC as different mortgages are paid off at different rates.
