A bond is a fixed income instrument that represents an obligation made by a borrower (bond issuer) to an investor (bond holder)
Why should you invest in bonds?
Investments in Fixed Income are investments in debt securities that provide a stable and regular higher income than traditional fixed income
investments like Bank Fixed Deposits and Corporate FDs.
Investing in diversified fixed income securities can enable efficient portfolio diversification and at the same time mitigate portfolio risk to achieve investment goals
Diversify your Portfolio
Offset your investments in MFs, Stocks or Real Estate. Bonds are less volatile and less risky than most assets and offer more stable returns. For example when stocks fall, bond prices usually rise.
Get Regular Income
Bonds offer a predictable income stream by paying interest at regular frequency like monthly, quarterly or annually. Use the regular income to manage ongoing expenses
Earn more than Fixed Deposits
Interest rates on corporate bonds are higher that bank FD rates. They are also tradable on exchange thereby providing liquidity without exit penalty unlike FDs.
For those in high tax bracket and investors seeking to optimize taxes may want to consider tax-free bonds issued by highly rated government-owned issuers.
