Haircut


Haircut
In finance the term indicates the percentage of reduction in the value of a security compared to its par value when it is accepted as collateral. In the discussions regarding turmoil in the euro-zone, the haircut corresponds to the loss that a bank or investor will suffer on a government bold they hold, should that country’s debt be restructured.
