Commercial paper is an unsecured money market instrument issued in the form of promissory notes that enables highly rated corporate borrowers to diversify their sources of short-term borrowings and provides an additional instrument to investors.
Such instruments can be issued for maturities between a minimum of 7 days and a maximum of one year from the date of issue.
CPs are usually issued at a discount from face value and reflect prevailing market interest rates.
