About Old Bonds

A bond certificate, like a share, is an 'evidence of title;' a document given to an investor as evidence of ownership of an amount of invested capital. It does not in itself prove ownership.
  • Bonds are issued, not only by businesses, but also by national, state, or city governments, or other public bodies, or sometimes by individuals.
  • Bonds are a loan to the company or other body; they are normally repayable within a stated period.
  • Bonds earn interest at a fixed rate, which must usually be paid by the undertaking regardless of its financial results.
  • A bondholder is a creditor of the undertaking.
