INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Put Bond'

Bondholders have the option of putting bonds back to the issuer either once during the lifetime of the bond (known as a one-time put bond), or on a number of different dates. Of course, the special advantages of put bonds mean that some yield must be sacrificed.

This type of bond is also known as a multimaturity bond, an option tender bond, a variable rate demand obligation (VRDO).
