Guaranteed Bond

A bond on which payment is guaranteed by a third party such as a government or a bond insurance company. A guaranteed bond is doubly protected because it is payment can come either from the issuer or from the third party in case the issuer defaults. As such, a guaranteed bond is low risk and therefore usually carries a lower coupon rate than an uninsured bond or other bond without a guarantee. A bond guaranteed by the U.S. government is generally thought to be riskless.
