About Corporate Bonds

Skip to Main content

Corporate Bonds are regulated debt instruments which act as an I.O.U. between the Issuer (usually a business) and investors. We use bonds instead of other debt instruments, such as loans, as they offer greater flexibility during the structuring process.

The flexibility of bonds

  • Transferability

    Corporate bonds are by virtue transferable; any of our bonds which have a term longer than 12 months will have transferability built in

  • Security

    Securing the borrower's debt benefits investors, and incentivises borrowers to repay the debt

  • Additional upside

    Bonds enable performance-related upside to be incorporated, such as royalties, warrants, or convertibility

Even if bonds are secured, security may be insufficient or difficult to realise. Please read our Risk Warnings.

Protecting investors

  • Segregated Client Accounts

    UK Bond Network does not hold client money including investment cash. Client money and client assets are held in the investor’s name by our FCA custodian, Jarvis Investment Management, who arrange settlement, safe custody, nominee and associated services in accordance with FCA rules. By entering into the Investor Agreement investors agree that Jarvis will act as their agent and will arrange for their cash and investments to be held in separately designated and protected accounts in accordance with FCA rules.

  • Professional Due Diligence

    We work closely with our legal advisors who conduct verification of all information provided by businesses to ensure that it is true and correct. All bonds are structured with assistance of legal advisors, including the implementation of appropriate covenants and the perfection of security, providing investors with added protection in the investments they make.
