Bonds

A conservative and typically guaranteed investment, a bond is a debt instrument issued for a period of one year or more. Bonds raise capital for the issuer by borrowing money from investors. The federal government, states, cities, corporations and many other types of institutions sell bonds. With a bond note, the issuer is basically promising to repay the principal along with interest on a specified date, also known as the maturity date.
