What is a corporate bond?

How do corporate bonds work?

Can I sell a bond?

  • How do Bonds provide regular income?

    • • Bonds provide a regular and stable income as investors receive scheduled coupon payments over the life of the bond provided the issuer does not default.
    • • Bonds offer attractive yields, higher than cash or even term deposits.
    • • Unlike shares where the company can cut dividend at its discretion and at any time, bonds are a reliable source of regular income as the bond issuer pays coupons until maturity provided it does not default.
    • • Bonds are available to Wholesale investors only1

     

  • How do Bonds preserve capital?

    • • Bond issuers are obligated to return principal amounts to bondholders at maturity. Capital preservation is a key benefit as the issuer returns the face value of a bond at maturity provided the issuer does not default.
    • • In the unlikely event of default of a corporate issuer, bond investors rank higher up the hierarchy of claims and are repaid before shareholders.

  • How Bonds are resilient

    • • Investment Grade bonds have proven to be resilient during periods of stock market volatility. They complement diversified investment portfolios and enable investors to better navigate markets given their robustness.

     

     

    Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.

     

  • What risks are associated with Bonds?

    • • Bonds are an investment product, not a deposit product, not a bank guarantee, no government guarantee and may lose value.
    • • In general, Bonds are less volatile than other investments, such as shares. However, losses are possible if interest rates change or Bond issuers default on their obligations to bondholders.
    • • Investors should refer to product disclosure documents for further important information relating risks, fees and other considerations before deciding to invest.
    • • Investors investing in funds denominated in non-local currency should be aware of the risk of exchange rate fluctuations that may cause a loss of principal if they need to convert the investment into an alternative currency.
    • • Some hybrids may skip or defer coupon payments.
