The success of the international financial system depends up on the availability of financial assets that can be bought and sold easily and which retain their value over a long period of time. Bonds and treasury bills issued by the Federal Reserve have played an important role in global funding by providing liquidity and safety. This also explains why bulk of the foreign exchange reserves held by nations, are in US dollars and why the greenback is the currency of international trade

In India too, the bond market is a huge contributor to the stable growth of the economy by enabling entities to raise funds to support the infrastructural development and expansion plans.

The bond market, also known as the credit, or fixed income market can be defined as a financial market where participants can issue new debt (primary market) or buy and sell debt securities (secondary market) usually in the form of bonds. The primary goal of the bond market is to provide a mechanism for long term funding of public and private expenditures.

The session will discuss in detail, the salient features of these markets with specific reference to the various instruments available, namely:

1. Plain Vanilla Debt
2. Zero Coupon Bonds
3. Floating Rate Bonds
5. Callable and Puttable Bonds
6. Convertible Bonds

The session is part of promoting financial literacy and discussions amongst interested professionals.
