Adjustable rate

Adjustable rate applies mainly to convertible securities. Refers to interest rate or dividend that is adjusted periodically, usually according to a standard market rate outside the control of the bank or savings institution, such as that prevailing on Treasury bonds or notes.

Typically, such issues have a set floor or ceiling, called caps and collars that limits the adjustment.
