A Bond is simply an 'IOU' in which an investor agrees to loan money to a company or government in exchange for a predetermined interest rate.
Currently, retail investors do not have a direct access to the Malaysian bond market. In order to diversify your investment portfolio, ETF for Bond can be considered.
Why an Exchange-Traded-Bond-Fund (ETF Bond)?
- Access to the inaccessible class of investment.
- Easy to buy; Easy to sell (just like you invest in any share, using the same trading account with existing securities firm via broker or trade online)
- Lower charges as compared to buying a unit trust
- Diversify your investment
