A bond is a security in which the authorized issuer undertakes bondholder to return the nominal value of the bonds and the corresponding amount of interest (coupon bonds) listed at the taxpayers. For taxpayers may be provided and additional stipulations that may further define the rights and / or obligations of the issuer or the holder of the bond. Bonds are usually issued for a longer period and are therefore classified as long-term securities.

If this period of maturity is between one and ten years then such securities referred to notes - medium-term bonds, and if their maturity less than one year then they called the bill / treasury bill - treasury bills.
