Trust Preferred Securities - TruPS


Trust Preferred Securities - TruPS
A security similar to debentures and preferreds that is generally longer term, has early redemption features, makes quarterly fixed interest payments, and matures at face value.

TruPS have been created by companies for their favorable accounting treatments and flexibility. Specifically, these securities are taxed like debt obligations by the IRS while maintaining the appearance of equities in a company's accounting statements as according to GAAP procedures.
