Bonds are debt instruments having a longer maturity period that are issued by government entities, public institutions, or joint stock enterprises to finance their budgets. Government bonds are those issued by the Treasury Undersecretariat, whilst private sector bonds are those issued by joint stock firms. Through brokerage firms and banks, investors can purchase and sell debt instruments that are traded on secondary markets. If an investor wishes to maintain the degree of risk at a minimum, he or she may choose to invest in government bonds rather than private sector bonds. Bondholders have the right to receive their receivables when they become due. The bondholder has the same legal authority to request payment of principal and interest in the event of bankruptcy or liquidation.

This course has been designed to analyze bond characteristics, yields, general valuation concepts, and risk criteria using examples. This course is intended to convey Turkish bond market transactions, yield curve models and analysis, and bond investment strategies with real-time price examples, to give thorough information about the bond market. After completing the training, investors will be better equipped to handle all domestic and international bond trading transactions with a variety of interest payment features. They will also be able to use the financial investment strategies they develop to build an investment portfolio that meets their unique risk-return expectations.
