Tops & Flops
Return versus credit rating
You like fixed-income investments and believe in the future of a particular company? Then a bond floated by that company might be just the right thing for you. Such securities are termed corporate bonds. Companies use them to raise money from investors to cover their financing needs.
Important when making a choice: If you come across a bond promising very high interest that is an indicator of increased risk. Put differently, the greater the danger of the issuer’s bankruptcy, the greater the premium offered investors as an offset. Because if the company goes bankrupt, in a worst case you lose your right to interest and a repayment of your capital contribution. So weigh up whether you would like to forgo maximum interest or want to shoulder maximum risk – the broad spectrum of corporate bonds gives you a variety of opportunities.
Trade through the market leader
Will the company you favor remain solvent until the bond matures? Orientation on this key question is provided by the ratings issued by agencies such as Moody’s, Standard & Poor’s and Fitch. At any rate, it’s important to know that Börse Stuttgart offers you liquid trading in corporate bonds. Meaning you can if you want at any time shed your investment before it matures.
