Bond Fund

An investment option that gives you exposure to a bunch of different kinds of bonds at the same time. There are millions of types of bonds, including municipal, government and corporate. With a bond fund, you can profit (or lose money) from a variety of them, depending on the exact one you sign up for. Remember, you don’t actually own all of them—the fund does. You are just buying a piece of the proverbial pie. (See also: ETF, Mutual Fund)
