Bonds
BONDS are debt investments. They represent a loan you make to an institution—a corporation, government, or government agency—in exchange for interest payments during a specific term plus the repayment of your principal when the bond comes due. Because the income you receive from a bond is generally fixed at the time the bond is created, bonds are often considered fixed-income investments.
