Benefits of Investing in Corporate Bonds
Investors buy corporates for a variety of reasons:
Dependable income. People who want steady income from their investments, while preserving their principal, may include corporates in their portfolios.
Safety. Corporate bonds are evaluated and assigned a rating based on credit history and ability to repay obligations. The higher the rating, the safer the investment as measured by the likelihood of repayment of principal and interest.
Diversity. Corporate bonds provide an opportunity to choose from a variety of sectors, structures and credit-quality characteristics to meet your investment objectives.
