Treasury Marketable Securities

U.S. Treasury marketable securities are debt instruments issued to raise money needed to operate the federal government and pay off maturing obligations. These liquid securities can be sold for cash in the secondary market.

U.S. Treasury marketable securities can be stripped into interest and principal components within the secondary market or can be converted from bearer securities into those that can be held in commercial book-entry accounts.
