INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Member Payment Dependent Note'

Member Payment Dependent Notes are highly speculative in nature and should only be purchased by aggressive investors who can absorb the loss of their entire investment. However, these notes also pay a very high rate of interest, ranging from about 7% to nearly 20%, depending upon various factors. Because of the lack of market for these notes during 2009, many investors purchasing this note were expected to hold the note to maturity.
