What is a Bond?

Bonds allow investors to lend their money to governments or private firms in exchange for interest.

Simply put, a bond is a loan.

Bonds offer several benefits relative to other investments such as providing stable, predictable returns,  having lower risk than stocks, providing fixed interest payments as a source of income and not necessarily requiring a broker or dealer.
