INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Revolving Underwriting Facility - RUF'

A revolving underwriting facility differs from a note issuance facility (NIF) in that the underwriters provide loans instead of purchasing the outstanding notes that failed to sell. In either case, both RUF and NIF provide short- to medium-term credit in the Eurocurrency market.
