Interest Rate Risk

The risk that changes in interest rates will affect the return on an investment, either positively or negatively. This effect may be due to realized or unrealized gains or losses on the investment's market value, to changes in the reinvestment rate on interest income, or to interest rates triggering prepayment or extension of principal.
