Bonanza Fixed Income Products





A bond issued at a face value to the bond holder. For example, Rs 1000 per bond.

Term to maturity of a bond changes every day from the date of issue of the bond until its maturity.

The issuer has to repay the principal amount on the maturity date.

Total amount invested by the bondholder in a bond issue is the principal amount.

For example you invest Rs 10,000 and you get total 10 bonds with face value worth of Rs 1000 each.

The coupon is the interest rate that the issuer pays to the security holder.

It refers to the periodic interest payments that are made by the issuer of the bond to the bond holder and are expressed as a percentage of the face value.

For example, just like your Bank FD payments.
