The world of investments is a complex one and it can be difficult to even find out all the available options, let alone which option is the best for your particular finances.
We may automatically think of the stock market or business start-ups when we hear the word “investment”, but bonds can be a form of investment as well. Stock market-linked bonds present an option in which you have a modicum of control over the risk level.
