An ideal way to diversify and lower the risk of your investment portfolio

Benefits

Investment Features

Investment has never been easier. Simply invest from your current account and enjoy the benefits of regular income.

Diversify your portfolios at attractive returns.

Bond issuers are bound by the terms of the bond to pay out regular coupon income to bondholders (subject to credit risk of the issuer).

With proper bond selection, you may potentially earn an investment return which keeps pace with or even exceeds the inflation rate.

The price of bonds may appreciate over the initial purchase price and may allow you to realise capital gains.

This is the risk that the bond issuer or borrower is unable to meet the coupon or principal payments on any outstanding bonds or debt (not just the bonds you may be holding) when they fall due (for example, due to bankruptcy or insolvency), and go into default.

Interest rates and bond prices are inversely related. Should interest rates rise, the price of your bond will tend to fall (and vice versa). The longer the time to maturity of a bond, the greater the interest rate risk opportunities.

Some bonds are denominated (and issuers payments made) in a foreign currency, which may fluctuate against your local currency. The impact of such foreign exchange movements may offset any interest or capital gains you may receive from bond investment.
