Definition of 'Closed-End Indenture'

Investopedia explains 'Closed-End Indenture'


If the bond issuer defaults, a closed-end indenture ensures the bondholders will have the only claims on collateral, making their bonds the most senior security. The fewer claims that exist on the collateral, the more safety a bondholder has.
