In issuing equity, the company essentially sells a portion of itself to the public in an IPO or to private investors in a Private Equity Placement.

The buyers are then known as shareholders and own a part of the company. In issuing debt, the company borrows from various sources. One way of issuing debt is through a bond.

The lenders are referred to as bondholders. In the event of liquidation or bankruptcy of a company, bond holders rank higher have higher claim on assets than shareholders do and are thus paid first. This is because bond holders are creditors. Shareholders are part owners of the company. With this ownership comes voting rights and the right to share in any future profits of the company. Ordinary shareholders are therefore the last to be paid. It is also worth noting here that as opposed to stocks, bonds have a defined pprospectus maturity after which the bond is redeemed.

It therefore makes sense for any investor to have at least part of their portfolio invested in bonds. The participants in the debt market are usually: A bond is a debt instrument. In even simpler terms, a bond is a loan in which the terms, pay-back date and interest rates are detailed in a legal document.

In finance, a bond is a debt security, in which the authorized issuer owes the holders a debt and is obliged to pay interest coupon and repay the principal at a later date. It is a formal contract to repay borrowed money with interest at fixed intervals. The primary market is where the bonds are issued and sold for the first proospectus such as in a PBO.

The secondary market is where bonds are later traded i.

Nearly all bonds pay interest. The rate coupon rate will vary depending on a number of factors such as current market interest rates, term to maturity, creditworthiness of the issuer, etc but these rates usually tend to have a relationship to risk. The more likely it is that a bond issuer will default on a loan, the higher the interest rate he must pay to attract investors.

These payments are usually made twice a year. Bonds with maturities of up to prospecctus years are referred to as short term bonds. Those with maturities of between 5 and 12 years are referred to as medium term bonds and those with maturities of more than 12 years are long-term bonds. Bonds may be secured or unsecured. A secured bond is backed by collateral, meaning it has the money or physical assets that a bond issuer must give to investors if the bond defaults.

Securing ensures that prosprctus will be available to pay the principal on the bond.

Instead, the issuer promises that the lenders kenyen be repaid. Unsecured bonds could be issued in this manner either because the company does not have enough assets to collateralize or the company is well established and is therefore trusted to repay its debts. Unsecured bonds naturally carry more risk than secured bonds and therefore pay higher yields.


A bond prrospectus interest rate stays the same over its lifespan is referred to as a fixed interest bond. The changes in rates usually reflect economic conditions.

A floating rate is usually pegged to another economic indicator prkspectus as Treasury bill rates or even inflation and is determined using a prescribed formula.
