Bonds & FDs

Bonds & FDs

In finance, a bond is an instrument of indebtedness of the bond issuer to the holders. The most common types of bonds include municipal bonds and corporate bonds. Bonds can be in mutual funds or can be in private investing where a person would give a loan to a company or the government.

On the other hand, an FD known as Fixed Deposit is a financial instrument provided by banks or NBFCs which provides investors a higher rate of interest than a regular savings account, until the given maturity date. Bonds and Fixed Deposits (FD's) are widely considered the two most popular alternatives for risk-averse investors across the world. While both bonds and FD's are 'fixed income' instruments in the sense that they offer interest income to investors, they actually differ markedly across various parameters.
