What is Fixed Income?

Fixed income investments provide investors periodic interest payments and have a set maturity date. As a general rule, fixed income investments are less volatile than equities and provide investors with safe, predictable returns for medium to longer term investors.

Why invest in Fixed Income?

Fixed income investments can provide investors with three primary benefits:

1. Regular income over long periods

2. Stable returns without high volatility

3. Protect savings by diversifying your investment portfolios.

Where do bonds sit compared to other investment options?

When investing, the two main performance measures are risk and return. Fixed income investments are typically skewed towards the lower end of risk and return measures. Fixed income investments offer moderate returns, but are lower risk than shares or property. Compared to cash, fixed income investments generally offer better returns but are slightly more risky.
