A fixed income security is an investment that provides a return in the form of fixed periodic payments and the eventual return of principal at maturity. Unlike a variable-income security, where payments change based on some underlying measure such as short-term interest rates, the payments of a fixed-income security are known in advance.
The most common type of fixed income securities are bonds. A bond is an investment product that is issued by corporate and governmental entities to raise capital to finance and expand their operations and projects. The borrower, or issuer, promises to pay interest, called the coupon, on an annual or semi-annual basis until a set date. The issuer returns the principal amount, also called the face or par value, to the investor on the maturity date.
