Term to Maturity (Years)
The time remaining on a bond's life, or the date on which the debt will cease to exist and the borrower will have completely paid off the amount borrowed.

Duration (Years)
Duration is defined as the weighted average time to full recovery of principal and interest.

Yield to Maturity (Average YTM)
The percentage rate of return paid on a bond, note or other fixed income security if the investor buys and holds it to its maturity date. The calculation for YTM is based on the coupon rate, length of time to maturity and market price. It assumes that coupon interest paid over the life of the bond will be reinvested at the same rate.
