US savings bonds combine the stability of a fixed-income investment with the confidence of investing in one of the most financially stable governments in the world.
With their modest-but-reliable interest rates, unique tax advantages, convenience, and income possibilities, savings bonds are excellent tools for consistent wealth-building.
Bonds typically bridge the gap between hyper-stable bank accounts offering next to no return on your money and equities like stocks providing higher returns for higher risk.
Savings bonds are especially effective as a hedge against riskier securities. Their backing from the US Treasury leaves a near-zero chance that investors will not earn their expected returns.
Series EE bonds last for 30 years. They have a guaranteed fixed interest rate for the first 20 of those 30 years.
