A bond is a fixed income instrument in which investor loans money to an entity (Corporate or Government) which borrows the funds for a defined period of time at a variable or fixed interest rate. Bonds are used by Corporate or Government to raise money and finance a variety of projects or activities.
It is a market meant for trading (i.e. buying or selling) fixed income instruments. Fixed income instruments could be securities issued by Central and State Governments, Municipal Corporations, Govt. Bodies or by Private entities like Financial institutions, Banks, Corporate, etc.
It refers to the Rate of Interest payable by the issuer to the investor on periodic basis.
Face value of the bond is determined by the issuer at the time of issue. It may be as low as Rs.100 or as high as Rs.10 lakhs per bond.
It refers to the date on which the bond matures, or the date on which the borrower has agreed to repay the principal amount to the lender or bond holder.
The price arrived at without adjusting the accrued interest component is called Clean price. In secondary bond market majority deals concluded on clean price.
The price arrived at after adjusting accrued interest component is called Dirty price. (e.g.: Clean Price + Accrued Interest)
The rate of return that an investor would earn if an investor buys the bond at current price & held it until maturity.
A call option provides issuer the right to redeem a bond before its maturity date i.e on Call date. Whereas a put option provides investor the right to give back bond to issuer before its maturity date i.e. on Put date.
The rate of return that an investor would earn if an investor buys a Callable/Puttable bond at current market price & hold it until the Call/Put date.
Perpetual bond is a bond with no fixed maturity date. Typically these bonds are issued with call option to be exercised by issuer on call date.
If call option not get exercised on call date, at defined interval and terms issuer can call back security. Yields of perpetual bonds are therefore calculated considering the call date.
If a coupon bearing security is traded between two coupon dates, the buyer has to compensate the seller by paying him that part of the interest which is due to him for the period for which he has held the security after the immediately preceding coupon date.
To, understand this let us assume A customer would like to buy 8.92% PFC 2033 bond in the secondary market and Deal execution/Settlement date is fixed as 14th Sep 2018.
Interest payment date of this security is 16th November every year. So, last interest was paid on 16th Nov 2017. No of days’ calculation between Settlement date and last interest payment date would be as below
|LAST INTEREST DATE||16/Nov/17|
|NO. OF DAYS||302|
Interest for the intervening period of 302 days will need to be paid by the buyer to the seller. Because interest payable by the company to the new holder will be for 365 days.
Calculation of accrued interest for 302 days = Rs.8.92 / 365 * 302 = Rs.7.38.
