What is a bond?

A bond is a debt instrument issued by governments, corporations and other entities in order to finance projects or activities. When companies or other entities need to raise money to finance new projects, maintain ongoing operations, or refinance existing debts, they may issue bonds directly to investors instead of obtaining funds from a bank.

In essence, a bond is a loan that investors make to the bond issuer. The price of a bond when it is first issued is basically the money being loaned and it is referred to as the face value. In exchange for this loan, an investor receives interest known as the bond’s coupon. This is something extra that the issuer pays to the investor for the privilege of using his/her money. Typically, the risker the bond, the higher the coupon rate.

These debt instruments are issued for a specified period of time such as one year, three years or even thirty years. At the end of this specified time period, the bond is said to have reached its maturity date. Bond issuer will pay the bond holder the face value of the bond. In other words, the bond issuer repays the loan to the investor. Bonds are often viewed as a stable and predictable form of investing.
