Investment involves risks. You should not invest in this product based on this webpage alone.

If you're looking for investments that can provide you with a stable interest income, you may want to consider bonds.

What is a Bond?

A bond is a debt instrument which is normally issued by governments, corporations or other entities for raising funds. When you purchase a bond, you become a creditor, and the issuer agrees to pay you its face value, plus interest, at regular intervals until the bond matures at a later date. Bond trading is conducted through Initial Public Offers (IPO) or the secondary market.

Risk Disclosure Statements

  • Investment involves risk. The prices of bonds can fluctuate, sometimes dramatically. The price of bonds may move up or down, and may become valueless. It is as likely that losses will be incurred rather than profit made as a result of buying and selling bonds.
  • Investing in this product is not equivalent to time deposit. This product is not a protected deposit and is not protected by the Deposit Protection Scheme in Hong Kong.
  • Default/ Credit risk - There is a risk that the issuer may fail to pay you the interest or principal as scheduled. In the worst case scenario, you may not be able to receive back the interest and principal if the issuer defaults on the bond.
  • Interest rate risk - When the interest rate rises, the price of a fixed rate bond will normally drop.
  • Exchange rate risk - If your bond is denominated in a foreign currency, you may face an exchange rate risk if you choose to convert payments made on bond to your home currency.
  • Liquidity risk - If you need to sell the bonds before maturity for an urgent cash-flow need or use the capital for other investments, you may not be able to do this since the liquidity of the secondary bond market could be low. If you choose to sell your bond before it matures, you may lose part or all of your investment.
  • Reinvestment risk - If you hold a callable bond, when the interest rate goes down, the issuer may redeem the bond before maturity. If this happens and you have to re-invest the proceeds, you may not be able to enjoy the same rates of return.
  • Equity risk - If your bond is "convertible" or "exchangeable", you also face equity risk associated with the stock. A fall in the stock price will usually follow by a fall in the bond price.
