Bonds are debt instruments issued by governments and corporations, and can be denominated in US Dollars or any foreign currency.
Typically each bond issued has a fixed interest rate (also known as a coupon) paid at regular intervals and a tenure ranging from 1 month to 30 years. Upon maturity the issuer repays the ‘face value’ of the security in full along with any outstanding coupon payments.

Examples of Bonds include:
Fixed Rate Bonds
These bonds pay the same amount of interest for their entire tenure, providing you with greater investment certainty.
Floating Rate Bonds
These bonds have a variable interest rate that are typically tied to market interest rates. When the reference market interest rate increases, the interest return may increase accordingly and vice versa
Zero Coupon Bonds
A zero coupon bond makes no periodic interest payment, but instead it is usually offered at a discount from its face value. The return will be reflected from the gradual appreciation of the bond which is redeemed at face value on maturity date
