The Basics on Fixed Income Investment

A fixed income investment is a type of investment that generates interest or dividend income. You earn dividends from company stocks or shares, while you earn interest from bonds, which may be issued by a certain branch of the government, a company, a bank or financial institution, or a savings and loan association.
