Bonds are medium to long-term financial investments that offer potential growth with a moderate risk level compared to other asset classes. We provide a variety of bond funds and first-rate expertise in fixed income management.
Focus on bonds
Bonds are debt securities issued by governments, public sector organisations and companies.
They pay interest to the holder (often at a rate that is fixed at issue) called a bond coupon. After a certain time, the issuer reimburses the bond’s nominal value to the holder. There are several bond categories, each with different characteristics. Bonds are considered less risky than equities, whose return is more difficult to predict.
