Main features of bonds

A bond is a negotiable debt security under which the issuer borrows a given amount of money, called the principal amount. In exchange, the borrower agrees to pay fixed amounts of interests, also called the coupons, during a specific period of time. Everything is well defined by the bond contract: the coupon rate is the interest rate that the issuer pays to the bondholder and the coupon dates are the dates on which the coupons are paid. Besides the issuer will repay the total amount of the principal when the bond will reach what is called maturity (or maturity date).

In short, a bond is a securitized loan.
First, we can mention the most relevant point that makes bond so attractive, especially in gloomy periods for stock markets. Indeed, the regular payments of interes and are repaid the principal value at maturity date. Bonds with maturity of one year or less are referred to as short-term bonds or debt.
Bonds with maturity of one year to ten years are referred to as intermediate bonds or intermediate notes. The long-term bonds are issued with a maturity of at least ten years and commonly up to 30 years.
A second important aspect is that all characteristics of bond are well defined in advance and the market offers different choices for each of them: coupon rate (also called coupon yield), coupon date, maturity date can vary from one bond to another but are known when investing into the given bond. It allows the investor to fit its investment strategy with its risk and return acceptable levels.
