What is a Bond? A bond is a certificate (a “note” or “bill”) that signifies an obligation to pay a specified amount over a specified period of time. The structure of the payments gives rise to different types of bonds: pure discount bonds, coupon bonds, or consols. Defined by: issuer; coupon; maturity; face value; type of bond
Discount Bonds A discount bond is a promise to pay a certain amount on a certain date. There are no coupon payments in the interim. These are also called “zeros” or zero coupon bonds. The payment is due on the maturity date, when the bond is redeemed for face value (or par ). The bonds are issued at a price below face value, or at a discount to par. To value these bonds, we simply need to determine the present value of the single cash payment.

Coupon Bonds Coupon Bonds offer a final repayment at maturity, but also regular coupon payments. These coupon payments come generally every six months and are fixed for the life of the bond. To value these bonds, we again simply compute the present value of the discounted future cash flows. ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 T T r F r C r C r C PV + + + + + + + + = 1 1 ... 1 1 2
