Bond Baba #2: G-Secs, Tax Free Bonds and 54 EC 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 2nd part of the Bond Baba video series.

In the first part of this series, we looked at the basics of bonds, how bonds can offer significantly higher return than the underlying coupon rate, the basic difference between risk profile of bank deposits vs bonds and we also learnt what are credit risk, interest rate risk and liquidity risk.

Today we will look at three types on bonds and how they suit our need:

  • What are G-Secs and who should buy it?
  • How can tax free bonds help us in tax loss harvesting (interest stripping).
  • What are 54-EC bonds and how can it help us in saving long term capital gains tax (sale of property).
