Market InformationSwitch to:
Usually referred to as fixed income securities, bonds are similar to shares whereby a government or company will issue debt as a form of raising money, which investors will then buy in return for interest income and the promise that they'll be paid back at some point in the future. The difference between bonds and shares is that the investor in shares is a part owner of a company, but an investor in bonds owns debt that is owed to them.
Also, like with shares the price of bonds rise and fall according to the demand for them. Capital Spreads provides quotes for the major government bonds trade in the UK, US and Europe. See our Trading Glossary for more information.
