What are Bonds
Bonds are simply debt instruments issued by governments, corporations, or other issuers to bondholders to raise capital. When you purchase a bond, you are lending money to the bond's issuer. Generally speaking, the issuer is obliged to pay you interest at regular intervals throughout the life of the bond and to repay you the stated principal at maturity. You may also sell the bond at prevailing market price prior to maturity.
