Marketplace – also known as peer-to-peer (P2P) – lending has emerged as an attractive, alternative asset class, providing average yields of 6% to 9% over relatively short periods of time, Morgan Stanley says.

They are great for those people who have been turned down by dealers in the past. Anyone in this position can apply now for a blank check auto loan with bad credit. Once they apply, the consumer will lock in an interest rate the day the loan is approved by the lender. That will give someone time to shop around for the vehicle of choice.

Bondinvestor — You are very right to point out that the US government has made a lot more real promises than those embedded in its formal TIPS issuance. But I’m not sure it’s right to say that those promises are more debt-like than formal inflation protected bonds because they have such numerous constituents. If the costs of overpromising really bind (which they have not at all thus far, the US government recruits real resources by issuing nominal currency and debt without any problem at all), there will be serious constituencies that prefer to pare back the programs rather than endure taxation and inflation. I don’t know how that conflict will work out, but it will be a political contest that will end in compromise, a mix of winners and losers but no clear regime change.
Bonds are a common form of financing that are used not only by large corporations but also by federal and state governments and agencies, school districts, and many other parties which need to borrow substantial amounts of money for a long period of time. When you purchase a U.S. savings bond, you are lending your money to the government. If you purchase a school district bond, you are making a loan to help pay for the construction of new schools or other improvements. If you purchase a corporate bond, you are lending money the corporation will use to finance expansion and growth either internally or to acquire other companies to achieve external growth.
Bonds are perceived as being low risk, but the level of risk depends on the type of bond in question. For example, holding corporate bonds will yield higher returns than holding government bonds, but they come with greater risk. Bonds also are subject to interest rate risk, reinvestment risk, inflation risk, credit/default risk, liquidity risk and rating downgrades. An advantage of being a bondholder is that some bonds are exempt from federal, state or local income taxes.
Bonds can be in registered or bearer form. If a security is in registered form, the issuer keeps a record of the person holding it, and makes payments due on it to that person. If the security is in bearer form there is no register of who holds the bond. It is traded without any record of ownership, and the person holding or ‘bearing’ the bond can collect the interest payments, and can ultimately collect the repayment of the capital without further question. A bearer bond may also be known as a coupon bond, because it has coupons that must be separated from the security and presented in order to receive interest payments.
