Zero coupon bonds

What is a zero coupon bond?

A zero coupon bond is a bond that does not make interest payments. 

This type of bond is issued at a discount to its maturity value and is redeemed at the maturity value, generating a return for the investor. 

UK Treasury bills are an example of a zero coupon bond. 

Zero coupon bonds can be issued by governments, municipalities, and companies.
