Bonds are debt security products that essentially translate to the investor loaning money to a government, corporation or other entity with the promise of repayment of the principal at maturation in addition to interest payments through the life of the bond. This type of investment is considered conservative and can play a crucial role for investors who strive to achieve or maintain a diversified portfolio. Bonds are generally long-term investments that aim to maintain a level of capital for future use such as in retirement or planning for college, but they can also be used as an interest-based revenue stream. In considering purchasing bonds, first consult the expertise of a skilled California investment fraud attorney from The Law Offices of Jonathan W. Evans & Associates.
Although bonds are thought to be largely risk-free, there are plenty of scenarios that are incompatible in terms of suitability for this type of investment. Stockbrokers, brokerage firms and investment advisors should always make the full terms and conditions of a transaction clear before moving forward, as investors need to be made aware of all of the risks so that they can make an educated decision. Some industry professionals may utilize misrepresentation and omissionof certain details as part of the account churning process that may hinder a transaction and the commission that follows. This type of negligence is known asfraud and is a direct violation of state securities laws.
