Is it Safe to Invest in Corporate Bonds image
Article excerpt: There is risk attached to all forms of stock market investment and, in this respect, investing in corporate bonds is no exception. The issue for those who are considering investment in corporate bonds is to determine the level of the risk attached, and what measures they should take to safeguard their investment, while at the same time maximising the return on capital and its growth in value. In order to assess how safe corporate bond investment is, it is therefore important to understand firstly, what a corporate bond is and secondly, how the level of risk is reflected within the price and return of the bond.
