3 Bonds basics Issuer  borrower (corporations or government) Investor   lender = bondholder Face Value/Par Value (F)  =  the amount of the loan to the issuer.  It is to be paid back to the bondholder at maturity. Coupon Rate   (r )   = the promised annual rate of interest.  It is normally fixed at issuance for the life of the bond Interest is usually paid semiannually Maturity  = date on which the investor's principal will be repaid.  A bond does not have to be held to maturity; sell at any time. Yield to Maturity (YTM) :  market interest rate for bonds     Bonds =  fixed-income securities  (the cash flows are fixed)

6 Bond Value Over Time After the bond is sold at face value, the discount rate  varies with the prevailing interest rate but coupon rates  are fixed. Consider a Telus bond with a 10% coupon rate After purchase of the bond, the interest rate on bonds  with similar risk increases to 11% As the discount rate increases the bond price  decreases and vice versa. Remember, higher discount  rate leads to lower present value.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
