Step-up (step down) notes, Financial Management

These types of securities have more than one coupon rate and each subsequent coupon rate is higher (or lower) than the previous coupon rate. For example, a 10 year step-up note (or step down note) might have a coupon rate that is 10% for the first five years and 11% (or 9%) for the last five years or, the step-up note (or step down note) could call for a 10% coupon rate for the first three years, 10.5% (or 9.5%) for the fourth and fifth year and 11% (or 9%) for the remaining five years. When there is only one change (or step up or step down) like the first example, then it is known as a single step-up note (or step down note). When there is more than one change then it is known as a multiple step-up note (or step down note) like the second example.
