Held to maturity

Investment in securities with the intention and ability to hold them to maturity. Note that these can only be debt securities as equity has no maturity. These are reported at amortized cost and temporary fluctuations in market prices do not affect the value reported on financial statements. Also see Available for Sale, Trading Securities.
