Diversify your investments as you enjoy ANA—Affordable investment amounts, No management fees, and Attractive returns. Unlike equities, bonds are excellent at preserving capital, making them a good investment option if you’re looking for better returns without taking on significant risk. Corporate bonds pay a fixed rate of interest or “coupon” (generally carrying a premium over the risk-free rate on government securities) during the life of the bond to provide you with a regular income stream. Corporate bonds are listed on the Philippine Dealing Exchange and are tradable in the secondary market.
