Bond Risk

The risk associated with investing in bonds. Major examples of bond risk include interest rate risk, which is the possibility one may not be able to reinvest at the same interest rate upon maturity; credit risk, which is the risk of default by the issuer; and inflation risk, which is the possibility that the inflation rate may outpace the return on the investment.
