 Bond (finance) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In finance, a bond is a debt security, in which the issuer owes the holders a debt and is obliged to repay the principal and interest (the coupon) at a later date, termed maturity.
Bonds are generally issued for a fixed term (the maturity) longer than one year.
Bonds and stocks are both securities, but the difference is that stock holders own a part of the issuing company (have an equity stake), whereas bond holders are in essence lenders to the issuer.

 bond. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
Security is usually pledged against a bond; unsecured bonds are regarded as a long-term obligation on the capital of the issuing body.
One method used to retire bonds is the sinking fund; in such a case the issuing body buys back some of its bonds each year and holds them itself, applying the interest to the fund.
Bonds were sold by the U.S. government to finance both World Wars and are still an important money-raising device.

 Guerrilla Funk: Finance: Bonds vs. Bond Funds
Consequently, if you want to dabble in junk bonds or shelter your income with high-yield muni bonds, you may be better off going the easy route and picking a good fund.
The disadvantage of a bond fund is that it's not a bond.
Finally, because fund managers constantly trade their positions, the risk-return profile of a bond-fund investment is continually changing: Unlike an actual bond, whose risk level typically declines the longer it is held by an investor, a fund can increase or decrease its risk exposure at the whim of the manager.

 Session 2: Bond (Debt) Finance
Debt finance is more attractive than equity finance, not only because the costs of raising the funds (for example arrangement fees with a bank or issue costs of a bond) are lower, but because the annual return required to attract investors is less than for equity.
Bonds which are sold at well below the par value are called deep discounted bonds, the most extreme form of which is the zero coupon bond.
Junk bonds reflect the return/risk tradeoff in that a higher return is required by the investor to compensate for increased default risk.

Bond funds have the scale to reinvest the coupon payments, and thus improve the return.
If a bond fund costs too much or is managed poorly, it loses the conceptual advantages of being able to add value through bond selection and reinvestment of interest.
Bond funds that exist in so-called “corporate class” mutual fund structures offer the potential benefits of holding a diversified portfolio, and the funds are structured to avoid paying tax on income.

 Bond convexity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In finance, convexity is a measure of the sensitivity of the price of a bond to changes in interest rates.
The price sensitivity to parallel IR shifts is highest with a zero-coupon bond, and lowest with an amortizing bond (where the payments are front-loaded).
Although the amortizing bond and the zero-coupon bond have different sensitivities at the same maturity, if their final maturities differ so that they have identical bond durations they will have identical sensitivities.

So what you pay for a given bond and what a bond fund manager pays for the same issue are not the same.
Whether this feature alone is sufficient to justify the management expense ratio of the bond fund is primarily a function of the amount of the management expense.
