Topic Overview

Fixed income is a broad class of financial products that comprises any investment where the investor earns a set payment on a predetermined schedule. These payments take the form of fixed interest payments and repayments of the principal when the security reaches maturity. So, it’s a debt instrument, as opposed to equity, or stocks. And because they are debt securities with known cash flows, fixed income is an attractive investment option for a wide-range of institutional and individual investors. And since there is such demand for fixed income investments, many governments or corporations issue these debt securities, also called bonds, to finance themselves. Therefore, fixed income is important for current and aspiring finance professionals to prepare for their careers in global Capital Markets. Read more
