We’ve published a new investor guide to bonds, designed to help novice investors find out more about an asset class that only 6% of Kiwis currently invest in directly.
Bonds are loans from investors to governments and companies for a fixed length of time, or term. Although typically they don’t have the high returns of other financial investments, they are seen as essential to any portfolio.
They aren’t just limited to big institutional investors – everyday investors can use them to diversify their portfolios and spread risk.
Our new guide cuts through the jargon to help novice investors understand what bonds are, how they work, what kind of investment they are and all the different types.
So before investing in bonds, check out our new bonds guide, Bond Voyage to understand how they work and how to choose, buy and own bonds.
