conditional prepayment rate (CPR)

Definition

The expected rate of prepayment for a pool of loans, such as mortgages or student loans. The CPR is expressed as a percent. For example, a CPR of 6% for a group of student loans would mean that the lender expects that 6% of the outstanding principal will be paid off before it is due.
