Bonds (fixed income)

Bonds are typically a safer investment with a prescribed income stream. The most common bonds are issued by federal, provincial or municipal governments where the payment and principal would be guaranteed by the government. Bonds can also be issued by companies and bond funds are available to those looking to diversify.

Bonds may be right for you if:

  • You prefer lower volatility
  • You fall under a more conservative investing profile
  • You prefer stability over higher returns
