Zero-Coupon Bonds

Fixed-income securities that are sold at a deep discount. They pay principal and interest upon maturity, not periodically like coupon bonds. The difference between the amount paid for the bonds and the amount received at maturity equals the return on the investment. The market value of zero-coupon bonds fluctuate more due to changes in market conditions than regular coupon bonds and therefore may not be suitable for all investors. Interest that accrues on zero-coupon bonds may be subject to income taxes annually, even though no payments are actually received in the client's account.
