Gap Management:

A technique using hedging to offset difference in the volume of assets and liabilities being repriced within a given time period. Repricing occurs because assets or liabilities mature and are reinvested at new rates or because they carry adjustable rates tied to some index. Gap refers to a specific period of time, such as a 30-day gap, in which assets repricing exceed or fall short of repricing liabilities.
