Bonds



Bonds are one of the most popular instruments for earnings in the form of regular interest. Commonly referred to as fixed income securities; they are used by companies, municipalities, states, and sovereign governments to finance projects and operations.

Unlike when trading with stocks, earnings are not realized from fluctuations in the bond’s value, but from regular interests.

By issuing bonds, the issuer addresses capital market investors who would like to deposit their funds into issuer’s securities. Upon doing this, the bond issuer undertakes to pay a regular interest at predetermined intervals, and upon the bond maturity; the deposited funds will be returned to the investor.

The stability of bonds (especially short-term bonds) is a lot more secure in comparison to the stability of shares. This is why we regard bonds as a safer instrument for trading.
LEGALLY REGULATED
Bond holders enjoy the protection of legal regulation. In most countries, should the company go bankrupt, the holders of this company’s bonds will receive a certain amount of money.
PREDICTABLE RETURNS
Investors can predict with a greater degree of certainty how much income they’ll have in the future. Hence, people may find security and predictability for profits generated by bonds.
SECURITIES
Bonds are fixed income securities. Therefore until the bond matures, the issuer must pay either an interest (coupon) or an amortization of the principal.

How it works

In its simplest form, bonds are an undertaking made by the issuer to pay a predetermined interest in predetermined intervals, and upon the bond’s maturity, the deposited funds are returned to the investor.

By purchasing bonds, you become the corporation’s creditor. In the event that the company’s business fail, you can still claim your money.
