Bonds are loans that are traded. There exist many types and issuers, but all of them have, more or less, MANY features in common which are discussed here. Because the discipline of fixed income management forms a moat that is so wide and deep, the discussion will focus on the practical application of using bonds in individual investors portfolios and the essential criteria for measuring value and volatility. They usually pay a fixed amount of interest  at regular intervals and have a term-to- maturity, at the end of which, they repay the principal to the bondholders and the bond issue ceases to exist. Bonds exist in registered and bearer form. Registered bonds are payable to the owner of record, whereas bearer bonds are CAN be transfered as cash. There is no owner of record, but rather whoever holds bonds in these forms is able to receive income from them. This latter form of ownership is rare in the United States. Issuers are varied, including companies, countries and governmentalities (states, cities, counties, etc.). individual bonds

Individual bonds are bonds issued by local companies. The list of companies is as vast as the activity sectors, with a certain concentration on the machinery companies, construction, financial services, energy, telecommunications, tobacco and food. Corporate bonds are used to fund their capital. When you buy individual bonds, you decide for a variety of local companies. Your investment opportunities include banks with the main field of activity in emerging markets as well as known energy suppliers. You can pursue the long-term strategy ("buy to keep") and do not have to monitor daily fluctuations in the capital market. Historical data show that Austrian corporate bonds proved to be not only financially strong, but they also offered attractive gains, with a favorable risk / profit ratio.
