More about our online course – Investing in bonds

Why should you invest in bonds?

Stocks and bonds are the two most popular asset classes in the capital markets. But for an individual investor like you and me, it may seem easier to buy a well-known stock than a promising bond. In 2023, that’s a big challenge because markets are extremely unpredictable and bonds are becoming an attractive investment once again (after 2022, when central banks increased interest rates which also increased bond yields).

Bonds offer lower risk compared to stocks and higher returns compared to bank deposits. They are a good way to combat inflation and offer a safe alternative in uncertain times in the stock market. Therefore, you should absolutely include bonds in your investment portfolio.

Four main reasons why bonds must be part of your portfolio in 2023:

  • Low Risk Investment: Bonds are considered one of the safest investment options because they have a lower risk compared to other investments such as stocks. Your investment is protected to a certain extent because the issuer of the bond is obligated to repay the loan with interest.
  • Diversification: Bonds can be a good addition to a well-diversified investment portfolio. By investing in a mix of stocks, bonds and other assets, you can minimize your overall risk and increase your chances of long-term success in the investing game.
  • Regular Passive Income: Investments in bonds can provide a reliable source of income because they offer regular interest payments (coupons). This can be especially useful for those seeking a regular, predictable income stream.
  • Capital preservation: When the stock market experiences a downturn (like expected in 2023), bonds can provide a safe haven for your money. By investing in bonds, you can protect your capital and ensure that your money remains intact even when the market fluctuates.

What are saying people who pre-viewed the course?

Everyone talks about bonds as an asset class, but I always thought bonds were more for institutional investors. I got an early preview of the course and learned how a small investor like me can profit from buying bonds or bond ETFs directly. L.P.

Equito got me an early access to the course. As a crypto investor, I found bonds extremely boring, but being open-minded, I decided to go through this course. After finishing the first few videos I got hooked. I understand now why it’s really important to diversify and include bonds in your portfolio, at least in turbulent times like now in crypto or when you get older. I learned my lesson in crypto when coins dropped 90 %. R.P.Ž.

I am a conservative investor by nature. I own some stocks, but I have always wanted to balance my portfolio with safer investments. I have searched online for resources on investing in bonds, but have not really found any. I was so glad when Luka mentioned he’s producing this course and a free webinar. I asked him to give me early access. He is a pure gold mine of knowledge about bonds and investing in general. B.C.

Frequently asked questions

Do I need any prior knowledge of investing?

No, you don’t need any prior knowledge of investing. Throughout the course, you’ll build strong foundations and then go step by step through all the necessary building blocks about investing in bonds.

Can’t I learn all that for free from different materials on the Internet?

It’s possible that you could learn from the free materials, but to be honest, it’s hard to find high-quality resources, especially on bond investing. Building your own curriculum can be difficult, overwhelming, and sometimes even chaotic. And you can’t get answers to your questions or get any additional guidance whatsoever. It would most likely take you dozens of hours just to find reliable resources, and then twice as many to put them together in the right context.

How much money do I need to invest?

Actually, you don’t need any money to invest. You can start learning, and when you feel confident enough, you can start buying bonds. Nevertheless, once you do decide to start investing and buying bonds, it’s recommended that you invest at least 5.000 EUR as a one-time investment, or at least a few hundred per month. The minimum amount is recommended to optimize transaction fees.

Will I get any value if I already have a financial advisor?

Absolutely. Acquiring knowledge in our online course will give you a good understanding of the bonds and what your optimal approach to portfolio allocation should be.
With that you will be able to more easily evaluate the advice from your financial advisor. In addition, you will learn the financial lingo, ask them better questions, and be more confident that you are on the right track.
