What Is Maturity Value As It Relates To Securities ?

Maturity value as it relates to securities is the amount an investor receives when a security is redeemed at maturity not including any periodic interest payments. This value usually equals the par value, although on zero coupon, compound interest and multiplier bonds, the principal amount of the security at issuance plus the accumulated investment return on the security is included.
