Past performance does not guarantee future results. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate, so that investors' shares, when sold, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Investing in any financial instruments does not guarantee that an investor will make money, avoid losing capital, or indicate that the investment is risk-free. There are no absolute guarantees in investing.

10 The Fixed Income Market

11  A debt investment in which an investor loans money to an entity (corporate or governmental) that borrows the funds for a defined period of time at a fixed interest rate. Bonds are used by companies, municipalities, states and U.S. and foreign governments to finance a variety of projects and activities.

12  Coupon – the interest rate that an investor receives for lending the principal, quoted annually but often times paid semi-annually  Principal – Also know as face value, amount which will be repaid to bondholder at maturity, generally ($1000)  Maturity – date at which the principal will be repaid to the bondholder

13  Secured/Unsecured – whether or not the bond is backed by collateral, in the case that the issuer defaults  Liquidation Preference – In the case of a bankruptcy, money is returned to debt holders/equity holders in accordance with seniority  Taxability – Municipal bonds are tax-exempt  Callability – Bond can be called before maturity

14  Credit/Default Risk – the risk associated with the issuer not being able to make interest payments or repay the principal on a bond  Prepayment Risk – typically through a call provision, risk of missing out on interest payments through early repayment of principal  Interest Rate Risk – the risk of interest rates dramatically changing

15  Three main bond rating agencies: S&P, Moody’s, and Fitch  Issuer ratings for Corporations, Municipalities or Governments based on likelihood to default  Also issue ratings on specific debt instruments, secured debt typically has higher rating than unsecured

16  Yield to maturity (YTM) is the most commonly cited yield measurement. It measures what the return on a bond is if it is held to maturity and all coupons are reinvested at the YTM rate. Because it is unlikely that coupons will be reinvested at the same rate, an investor's actual return will differ slightly.

17  Coupon Rate > Market Interest Rate Bond is sold at Premium  Coupon Rate < Market Interest Rate Bond is sold at Discount  Yield - Price  Price - Yield

19  A measure of the sensitivity of the price (the value of principal) of a fixed-income investment to a change in interest rates. Duration is expressed as a number of years.  Higher duration: longer maturity, lower coupon  Lower duration: shorter maturity, higher coupon

20  Corporations – repaid by cash flows, backed by assets  US Government – assumed to be risk-free  Municipalities – backed by taxing power or project revenue  Sovereign Governments – taxing power
