In previous activities we introduced bonds. Unlike buying shares in a company when bonds are purchased they are done by lending money to either a company or government. Often times when businesses or governments want to raise money they borrow it. The entity that wishes to borrow the money is called the issuer. When we buy bonds we are lending money to the issuer.
