Definition - What does Adjustment Index mean?
An adjustment index is a data modification such as a numerical adjustment to the rate of interest paid on a mortgage of a set number of years. The index would keep track of all the adjustments that were made to a base number or calculation in order to act as a historical reference and for legal implications such as assessing the amount of tax or interest paid.
