What is Commercial Paper?
Commercial paper is a money market instrument issued normally for tenure of 90 days. It is a short term promise to repay a fixed amount that is placed on the market either directly or through a specialized intermediary. It is usually issued by companies with a high credit standing in the form of a promissory note redeemable at par to the holder on maturity and therefore, doesn't require any guarantee.
