Bonds are a kind of loan through which governments or companies raise money.
If you buy a bond, there are two important things to remember:
- You are technically lending money to the bond issuer
- The issuer is obliged to pay you back interest (the bond “coupon”), or the value of the bond (also called the “principal”) at a later date (“the maturity”)
