What are Bonds?
A bond is an instrument of indebtedness (similar to a loan) of the issuer to the holders. The most common issuers of bonds are governments and corporate entities.
What are the benefits of investing using Bonds?
Primarily, Bonds provide a predictable income stream via interest payments, usually twice a year. Barring a default, bonds are also principal-protected securities where investors get back the entire principal at maturity. Historically, Bonds have helped offset exposure to more volatile stock holdings.
