Risk of investing in Bonds and Notes:
· This information is for general information purposes only and does not constitute investment advice. Carefully assess your risk tolerance and investment goals and consider seeking professional advice if necessary.

· The following risk disclosure statements explain some general risks, but are not meant to be an exhaustive list of all possible risks, involved in your investment or dealing in bonds. Please refer to the relevant offering documents or terms sheets for further details.
· The price of both bonds and notes can fluctuate significantly due to various factors including changes in interest rates, creditworthiness of the issuer and overall market conditions. Over time, inflation erodes the purchasing power of your investment. While bonds provide a fixed interest rate, if inflation rises faster, the real value of your investment will decrease. Your return may be substantially less than the initial investment.

  • What is the relationship between interest rates and bond prices?
    They are inversely correlated. When interest rates fall, bond prices rise; and vice versa. If you buy a bond and hold onto it until it matures - as many investors do - rising interest rates will not affect the principal amount you receive upon maturity. But if the interest rates go up and you need to sell your bonds before they mature, their value may have gone down and you may have to sell them at a loss. If the interest rates have gone down since you bought the bonds, the value of your bonds may have gone up and that will give you what is known as a "capital gain".
  • Is there a minimum investment period or a lock-in period?
    No. Bonds are mainly medium to long-term investments, not short-term speculations. If you're planning to invest your funds in bonds, you should be prepared to do so for the full investment tenor.
  • What is accrued interest?
    Accrued interest is the accumulated interest from the last coupon payment date until the settlement date of the bond (i.e. the date which the bond transaction completes). If you are purchasing a bond, you will pay the existing bondholder (i.e. the seller) the accrued interest first and in the next coupon payment, you are entitled to receive the full coupon based on the nominal you invest, effectively receiving the amount pro-rata.
  • Do I have to hold bonds until maturity?
    Client can sell the bonds before it matures and the selling price is subject to market conditions.
