Investment has never been easier. Simply invest from your current account and enjoy the benefits of regular income.
Diversify by investing in different type of bonds: onshore, offshore, corporate and government bonds.
A bond is a fixed income instrument that represents a loan made by an investor to a borrower (typically corporate or governmental). A bond could be thought of as an I.O.U. between the lender and borrower that includes the details of the loan and its payments.
Regular Income: Bond issuers are bound by the terms of the bond to pay out regular coupon income to the bondholders (subject to the credit risk of the issuer).
Hedge against inflation: With the proper bond selection, you may potentially earn an investment return which keeps pace with or even exceeds the inflation rate.
Capital appreciation: Like all instruments traded in the secondary market, the price of a bond can appreciate (or depreciate) over and above (or below) the initial purchase price, and allow an investor to realize capital gains (or losses).
