Debt securities issued by legal entities such as limited liability or joint stock companies constitute an alternative investment instrument. Although corporate bonds do not necessarily yield a higher rate of return than other financial instruments like shares or derivatives, they offer a much higher level of stability and security. In addition, while they can be much more profitable than bank deposits, they are as secure as deposits. Before deciding to make an investment in this kind of instrument, one should realize that the potential for higher returns also carries a greater risk of loss, even in the case of those bonds that are considered safe. Therefore, being mindful of security, STARHEDGE only invests in corporate bonds if the value of the collateral, after all possible market discounts have been applied, significantly exceeds the amount of funds invested.
