Bond investing is the practice of buying and holding bonds as a way to earn a return on investment. A bond is a type of debt security that is issued by a government or a corporation, and it represents a loan that the issuer makes to the bondholder. When an investor buys a bond, they are effectively lending money to the issuer, and the issuer agrees to pay the investor a fixed rate of interest over the life of the bond. At the end of the bond's term, the issuer also agrees to repay the principal amount of the loan to the investor. Bond investing can provide a steady stream of income to investors, and it can be an attractive option for investors who are looking for a relatively low-risk investment.
