In the capital market, besides buying stocks, investors can also buy bonds. Quoted from the official website of the Financial Services Authority (OJK), bond investment is intermediate and long-term securities that can be traded.
Bonds contain an embedded coupon or yield that will be paid by the bond issuer (debtor) to the buyer (creditor/investor) and the maturity date, under which the debtor is obliged to repay the par value to the investors.
These debt securities or bonds are issued by the government or corporations. In Indonesia, the issuer takes 1 to 10 years to repay the principal of a bond, making it an intermediate and long-term investment. Here are the types of bonds and their characteristics.
Types of Bonds
There are several types of bonds, which are classified based on the issuer, bond amounts, interest payment systems, and yields.
