What is Maturity Date?
Maturity date is the date on which a financial or debt instrument, such as a bond, CD, or loan, expires and its principal amount becomes due. Note that at this point, the investment ceases to pay interest, and an investor can redeem accumulated interest as well as their capital without any penalty.
Usually, long-term debt instruments, such as treasury bonds, tend to have maturity dates of 10 years or more.
