Our Bond Desk offers a unique platform for both government and corporate bonds. Governments and corporations issue bonds when they need capital. If you buy a bond, you’re lending that government or corporation money. Similar to a loan, a bond pays interest periodically, offering a regular income stream and return of capital at an agreed future date.
Investors will typically hold bonds in their portfolio for income stream, diversification, and protection against economic weakness or deflation. Bonds are often viewed as more secure than equities as you avoid potential stock market volatility.
