Corporate bonds

Corporate bonds are similar to government bonds, except, in the former, investors lend their money to companies instead of the government for a specific period of time. The only other difference between the two bond types is that compared to government bonds, corporate bonds carry a relatively higher level of risk. However, given the associated higher level of risk, corporate bonds generally provide higher bond yields than government bonds.
