Why Invest in Government Bonds?

  • Government bonds are generally considered liquid assets, meaning they can be bought and sold with relative ease in established financial markets.  
  • Government bonds are considered relatively safe investments because they are backed by the government’s ability to tax its citizens and print money. They suitable for investors seeking to protect their principal and minimize the potential for loss. The stability makes government bonds appealing to conservative investors seeking to preserve their capital.
  • Bonds hedge against economic downturns or market volatility. During periods of market turbulence, government bonds often exhibit inverse price movements to stocks, providing a cushion to investors’ portfolios and potentially reducing losses.
