Have you ever wondered what an investment bond is?
To put it simply, bonds are effectively an IOU between a borrower (the issuer of the bond) and a lender (the investor who purchases the bond).
Although they’re less discussed in the retail investment space, the bond market in Australia alone is huge! As of May 2022, there are over $888 billion worth of Australian Government bonds issued, and that’s not even including the trillion dollar corporate bond market in Australia.
