corporate bond fund

An investment company that invests in long-term corporate bonds and passes the income from these securities to its stockholders. Although these funds vary in value with changes in long-term interest rates, they usually provide a current return in excess of money market funds. Corporate bond funds are of interest primarily to investors seeking high current income or to those betting on a substantial fall in long-term interest rates.
