Market Value Adjustments

The adjustment to an investment contract’s market value due to employer-initiated events, impaired securities, or market value events. Alternatively, for some GICs, the adjustment (sometimes known as a surrender charge or surrender value adjustment) to a GIC’s market value due to termination prior to the stated maturity date.
