The Payoff Curve at Maturity plots the payoff that investors would receive at maturity for various ending values of the reference asset. The Payoff Curve at Maturity matches the sum of the components described in the Valuation section. It also compares the payoff at maturity to the payoff of simply purchasing the reference asset directly (which may or may not be possible).
The Valuation section describes how this product can be valued using information as of the issue date. Most products can be decomposed into simple options positions, coupons and a zero-coupon bond, which can each be valued independently. This section also discusses liquidity and other market concerns.
