What are bonds?

Bonds are securities that usually earn you regular interest payments. The most important features:

Anleihen Icon

  • When you buy a bond, you lend the issuer of the bond an amount of money for a fixed term.
  • In return, you will receive regular interest and the amount will be repaid to you at the end of the term.
  • In addition to the general level of interest rates, inflation expectations, the maturity and the creditworthiness of the issuer also have an influence on the amount of interest payment. This can be seen from the credit rating.

Frequently asked questions about bonds

Why is the value of my bond fluctuating?
 

At the end of the term, the bond is repaid at its nominal value (note creditworthiness/issuer risk). Until then, however, the price of a bond is subject to the interplay of demand and supply on the stock market. In particular, the general interest rate level has an influence on the value of a bond. If market interest rates rise, for example, the interest on a fixed-rate bond becomes relatively less attractive and the price of this bond falls. Thus, a rise in market interest rates is usually accompanied by falling bond prices. Moreover, even if all interest and the nominal value are paid at maturity, a bond investor may incur a loss if, for example, they sell before maturity at a price lower than the issue or purchase price of the bond. Creditworthiness and inflation risks can also have an adverse effect on the price of the bond. Please also refer to our risk information.

When do I receive my interest from bonds?
 

Interest is calculated on a daily basis and paid out annually. As a result of the day-by-day calculation, the price of the bond (apart from other influencing factors) increases every day in line with the accrued interest entitlement. With the annual payment, the bond price decreases accordingly. Depending on the bond, the exact interest payment date can be found in the product information sheet and on the website of the issuer of the bond.

Do I get the invested money back completely?
 

Yes, you get the invested money back in full at the end of the bond's term. Please note the risks explained below.

What happens if I need the invested money again before maturity?
 

If you need the invested money before maturity, you can sell the bond at any time. However, this may result in a loss if the current market price is lower than the purchase price.

Risk of bonds

Issuer or credit rating risk

When investing in bonds, investors become creditors of the bond issuer. If the issuer becomes insolvent, there is a risk that interest payments and/or the repayment of the invested amount may not be received at all or only in part. There is no deposit insurance for bonds. If the issuer becomes insolvent, investors may lose their invested capital (total loss).

Price risk

Bonds can be sold on the stock exchange at any time before maturity. However, there is a risk that the price of the bond may be lower than the purchase price when it is sold.
