Helping investors access bonds

Bonds provide a regular and stable income as investors receive scheduled interest payments (called coupons) throughout the life of the bond provided the issuer does not default. With bank cash rates at all-time lows, bonds offer attractive yields above money in the bank.

Capital protection is a key benefit as the issuer returns the principal of a bond at maturity provided the issuer does not default. In the unlikely event of default of a corporate issuer, debt holders generally rank higher than equity holders in the capital structure, subject to any noteholder subordination.
