Investment Grade Bonds

By investing in these bonds, you can generate a stable and secure stream of investment income.

Investment Grade Bonds

Receive principal value of your bond upon its maturity or when the bond is called by the issuer. These bonds come with varying credit ratings, features and maturities denominated in all major currencies as well as a variety of Asian currencies.

Investment grade bonds have a minimum credit rating of Baa3 by Moody’s and BBB- by Standard & Poor’s. These credit-rating agencies assess the credit risk of the issuer of the bonds and assign them a credit rating based on information available at the time. Credit risk rating represents the agencies’ opinion on the possibility that the bond issuer may fail to pay what is owed.

Benefits

  • Steady flow of interest income through the tenor of the bond
  • Receive the principal value of the bond upon maturity or when the bond is called by the issuer
  • Generally less volatile than speculative grade bonds
