Bond Baba #1: An introduction to bonds [Video]


We have started a video series on bonds, where we’ll explain the bond market and its nuances in an ELI5 format. This is the 1st part of the Bond Baba video series.

“Abeyaar, Kitna Milega?”, is the first question investors often ask before investing in an asset class. When it comes to equity, gold or real estate, no one really knows the returns one could possibly make. But there is an asset class which offers fixed returns, it’s called the fixed income. Well, we do know how fixed income instruments such as FD and PPF work but many investors lack clarity on how the bond market functions.

We have already written scores of articles on bonds. However, we decided to make our existing tutorials more interactive. Therefore, we are moving one step ahead and starting a new video series on bonds where we’ll explain the bond market and its nuances.

In the first part of this series, we will cover the basics:

  • What are bonds?
  • Why should you invest in it?
  • What are the risks associated with bonds?

Here’s the video (subscribe to our YouTube channel for more videos)

Bond Baba #3: Convertible, Callable, Puttable, Floating Rate, and ZCBs

That’s all for now folks but we will discuss a lot more in this series in the subsequent videos. You can find me on twitter @AstuteAditya
