Investing in Bonds
So you have been investing in stocks, and you have been quite successful at it. Now why not try bond investments?
Compared to stocks which only public corporations sell, investment bonds are offered not only by corporations, but by public authorities such as the federal government, government-sponsored agencies, cities, and states as well.
The variety of bonds you can invest on is also quite staggering compared to the handful of varieties in which stocks come. In other words, the multiple entities that can offer bonds investment opportunities plus the sheer number of forms bonds can take makes bond investing a bit more complicated than putting your money on stocks. But once you get past the terms and concepts that can be intimidating for beginners, investing in bonds is quite simple.
When you get down to it, a bond is basically just a glorified way of borrowing money for the entities that issue it, typically to raise funds for financing new projects, maintaining their operations, or refinancing current debts.
Legal documents will carefully spell out the terms, pay-back date, and of course, the interest rate, which is the return that those who invest in bonds are bound to earn.
