Yield Curve Risk - The risk of losses due to adverse changes in the yield curve.
Yield Maintenance - A prepayment premium allowing investors to realize the same yield as if the borrower made all scheduled mortgage payments until maturity. Created to make investors indifferent to prepayments and to make refinancing unattractive and uneconomical to borrowers.
