About fixed income bonds
Why invest in bonds?
Receive a regular income stream
Bonds might be suitable for you if you'd prefer to receive stable income on your capital throughout the tenor of the bond.
Diversify your investment risk
Diversification is important because different assets respond differently to different market conditions. Having different types of investments may lower the overall risk of a portfolio, as they tend to be less volatile.
Reap potential long-term gain
Certain investments offer the potential to make capital gain by selling them if they appreciate in market value.

This information is neither an offer to sell, purchase or subscribe for any investment nor a solicitation of such an offer. HSBC accepts no liability for any loss or damage arising out of the use of all or part of this material. This information is general and does not take into account a person's individual circumstances, objectives or needs.
The price of bonds can and does fluctuate, and any individual bond may experience upward or downward movements, and may even become valueless. There is an inherent risk that losses may be incurred rather than profit made as a result of buying and selling bonds. The secondary market for bonds may not provide significant liquidity or may trade at prices based on prevailing market conditions. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.
If you choose to invest in bonds, you are taking on the risk that the issuer of the bond may default on its repayment obligations. The holder of the bonds bears the credit risk of the issuer and has no recourse to HSBC unless the latter is the issuer itself. The decision to place the investment should be based on your own judgment without relying on any material provided or advice given by the bank or its representative. You should consider these matters and consult your financial adviser prior to making any investment decisions.
