Corporate bonds are issued by companies for the extending of operations. They have either fixed or adjustable installments, with maturities between 3 and 30 years. Besides the classic ones that pay the loan value at maturity, corporate bonds can also be convertible or have a ‘call’ option. In the case of the convertible ones, the bonds holder can exchange for the lent amount of money to shares within the company. Bonds with a ‘call’ option give the possibility of rebuying them at maturity with an established price at the issuing date. Corporate bonds advantages:
• Corporate bonds are a cheaper way of funding, adopting a long-term loan.
• You can invest in well-known local or international companies.
• You can benefit from attractive profits from currency exchange.
• The offered interest rate is above the market average, for a long period of time.
