Bonds offer the greatest certainty of income, (although some bond issuers may default on payments) but may fail to keep pace with inflation. If a bond is held to maturity, its value can be easily determined by the scheduled payments over the life of the loan. In the time between issue and maturity, however, a bond's value can be volatile. As a bond's price falls, its yield (the income expressed as a percentage of the capital value) increases, and vice versa.
