convertible floating-rate note

Definition

A security based on borrowed funds with a variable interest rate that may be traded for another security of the same type with a higher rate of interest that does not change over the life of the security. The convertibility feature reduces investor risk from falling interest rates by allowing the note holder to lock in a rate of return.
