Glossary Term: DEBENTURE

Definition(s) for DEBENTURE:


1. ) Unsecured debt obligation, issued against the general credit of a corporation, rather than against a specific asset. A corporate bond that is not secured by specific property. In the event that the issuer is liquidated, the holder of a debenture becomes a general creditor and therefore is less likely than the secured creditors to recover in full. Because of the high risk factor, debentures pay higher rates of interest than secured debt of the same issuer.

2. ) Debt not secured by a specific asset of the corporation, but issued against the issuer’s general credit.

3. ) A loan raised by a company, paying a fixed rate of interest and secured on the assets of the company.

4. ) These are secured corporate bonds that are used to raise long-term debt capital.

5. ) A type of debt security issued by large companies.

6. ) Refers to a form of securities representing money borrowed by a company and charged in part or whole on the company's property. Debentures bear a fixed rate of interest and the capital sum is normally repayable with a fixed term.
