Fixed Income

Fixed-income refers to investments -- predominantly bonds -- that pay holders a rate of interest over their lifetime (this may in fact be fixed or variable). Market conditions will fluctuate over the life of a fixed-income instrument and investors may be able to buy or sell them as a discount or premium to their face value, but this doesn’t affect the interest payments, which remain constant.
