pure yield pickup swap

Definition

An investment strategy in which lower-yield bonds are traded for higher-yield bonds. A transaction of this type enables greater profit, but at greater risk. Higher-yield bonds are generally of longer maturity, increasing risk from interest rate changes, and may be of lower credit-quality.
