What is Bond?

A bond is financial security, in which the issuer owes the holder debt and, depending on the terms of the bond, is obliged to pay interest (the coupon) to use and/or to repay the principal at a later date, termed maturity.

The combined balance of all outstanding bonds is referred to as the government's debt or national debt.

Bonds are issued, either privately or publicly, by non-government entities such as companies and by the government itself. A company may issue bonds to finance projects and increase the ownership value of its assets.

A country's government might also issue bonds to meet the borrowing needs of its people and government(finance minister). Countries typically issue short-term debt to meet short-term financing needs and longer-term debt to meet long-term financing needs.

A country's need for more capital(money) is usually constant. However, the country has an inflow of capital (i.e., loans/bond issuance), it borrows additional money by selling bonds on the open market to pay for its expenditures.

A bond, also known as a fixed-income instrument, is a debt security with a fixed face value/principal amount and an interest rate that is fixed over the life of the instrument.

A bond is not just an ordinary debt, but still has some features of equity, because it is normally issued only by the government or companies with creditworthiness for financing at low risk.
