Government Bond

Market Terms

We don't know everything about the markets.  We're just devoted to learners.  Taken from those smarter than ourselves, here's how we define Government Bond.

A debt security issued by a government to fund federal spending or programs.  Government bonds represent debts issued by a government itself.  They are generally considered to be low-risk investments as they’re backed by the issuing government.  The US Treasury issues bonds that are considered some of the safest investments in the world.  Some bonds pay periodic interest rates referred to as “coupon payments.”  But because of their low risk, interest payments are generally low.
