Bonds are loans that investors make to corporations and governments. Borrowers get the cash they need and investors earn interest.
Bonds are appealing because they generally pay a set amount of interest on a regular basis.
There are a variety of bonds available including:
- Corporate Bonds
- Zero Coupon Bonds
- CMO Bonds
- Treasury Bonds
- Municipal Bonds
- Structured Notes
The return and principal value of bonds vary based on the issuer of the bond and changes in market conditions. If redeemed prior to maturity, bonds may be worth more or less than their original cost.
