Investopedia explains 'Master Notes'


Master notes typically have an embedded put/call feature that is advantageous to most money managers. These embedded options may limit the frequency of purchases or sales of money market instruments such as discounted notes, and allow for the daily ability to adjust total value, either upwards or downwards, by 25% of the base principal.
