Duration is an index which measures the speed with which invested capital will be repaid. Normally, a longer duration is accompanied by greater financial risk for the security: therefore, it is important to consider this index should there be a significant risk of default on the part of the issuer, as a change in rates is accompanied by a change in the price. The longer the security's duration, the sharper the price change.
