Yield Maintenance

Yield Maintenance is a kind of prepayment fee, the rate differential between the loan interest rate and the prevailing market interest rate on the prepaid capital that borrowers pay to lenders, to compensate for the loss of interest resulting from the prepayment of a loan or the calling in of a bond.

Yield Maintenance = Remaining Payments Amount x (Interest Rate - Treasury Yield)
