Commercial Paper – South Florida Business and Commercial Litigation and AAA (American Arbitration Association) Arbitration Attorney:

“Commercial Paper” is usually a short-term obligation with maturities ranging from 2 to 270 days issued by banks, corporations, and other borrowers to investors with temporarily idle cash.  Such instruments are unsecured and usually discounted, although some are interest-bearing.  They can be issued directly, by the issuer, or through brokers equipped to handle the enormous clerical volume involved.  Issuers like commercial paper because the maturities are flexible and because the rates are usually marginally lower than bank rates.  Certain ratings agencies rate commercial paper.
