August 2020: Let's Talk About Bonds

Bonds are normally part of a conservative diversified investment strategy. As such, it is important to have an understanding of bonds and how they function. Bonds (or “fixed income”) are utilized in portfolios to help reduce risk and add stability to the portfolio. In addition, bonds can create cash flow that can be used to fund withdrawals. Bonds are issued by businesses and governments to help fund their operations. It is essentially similar to a loan or an I.O.U, which is a promise to pay back the principal (amount borrowed) plus interest to the holder. They are typically issued with a face value of $1000 per bond and will have a stated interest rate that is set when the bond is issued.
