The Benefits of Corporate Bonds eBook

Bonds are a great way to generate a reliable cash flow

When investing funds generated from years of hard work, many investors look for options that give them strong capital protection, while also generating a reliable, healthy income.

But deposit accounts barely keep up with inflation and shares can experience a capital wipe-out in just days. That’s why more and more smart investors are looking to Corporate Bonds.

Delivering income certainty throughout the year

Because a bond is a loan on fixed terms, you can expect regular and consistent income payments at set intervals during the year.

The bond’s performance is not tied to a company’s share price, so you can relax and focus on other things, rather than worrying about what the share market is doing.

This makes bonds a great investment when looking for a more secure option to directly investing in these companies through shares.

It’s a smart way to diversify

With bonds available from companies in industries as varied as banking, construction, infrastructure, insurance, transport, airlines, retailing and more, it’s easy to ensure diversification for reduced capital risk.

Making corporate bonds available to 'Mum and Dad' investors is brilliant. When we started our SMSF I didn't think we would be able to invest in bonds at all. Very pleased that we have been able to do that, thanks to FIIG.
