Related to Bond Issue: Bond Issuer
A set of bonds that a company or government offers for sale. That is, when one sells bonds to the public (or offers them for private placement) the collection of those bonds is said to be an issue. If the company or government is selling a set for the first time, it is said to be making a new issue. Typically, bond issues may be bought and sold on the open market, although there are many non-tradable bonds.
