Why Bonds and Notes?

Investment tools offered by the government, like bonds and notes, can work well in conjunction with other wealth instruments by helping to provide slow, steady growth.. Their value is less tied to the whims of the stock market, making them a potentially valuable piece of your investment toolkit.

Bonds and notes are an IOU from the government. When you buy a bond, the government will pay you back in installments—with interest. The difference between the two is that bonds are issued with a 30-year term, while notes offer shorter terms between two and 10 years


  • 30-year term
