Undated stocks


Government stock with no stated date for redemption. They may be permanent funds the government has no intention of ever redeeming, such as consolidated stock. Because they are undated, they are often the best indication of the movement of interest rates, as their price is influenced only by the prevailing rate of interest on risk-free investments.
