Bond Portfolio

A portfolio that invests predominately or exclusively in bonds. It collects coupons that are based on the aggregated risk and maturities of the bonds represented in the portfolio. Bond portfolios may be composed of convertible, corporate, treasury, mortgage or municipal bonds, or some combination of the five. They may also be classified by average yield, or by length of time before maturity.
