Definition for : Maturity mismatch
If, for a given maturity, cumulative Assets are less than cumulative Liabilities, the company will be unable to meet its obligations unless it finds a new source of funds. This deficiency is called the company's maturity mismatch, similar to that of a financial institution that borrows short-term funds to finance long-term Assets.
