This lecture is about bonds. A bond is a debt investment in which an investor loans money to an entity (typically corporate or governmental) which borrows the funds for a defined period of time at a variable or fixed interest rate. It discusses the bond terminology, how to compute the price and yield of the different types of bonds. Additionally, it describes why bond prices change over time and how credit risk affects a corporate bond.
