  1. Zero Coupon Bonds

    Zero coupon bonds is a bond that is issued at a discounted price and redeemed at par at the time of maturity.

    Let us assume that Mr Rahul has invested Rs. 920/- in a zero coupon. Let us further assume that after 1 year he would receive Rs. 1000/- .

    In the instant case Rahul pays Rs. 920/- (Discounted price) and he would receive Rs. 1000/- (Par value) after 1 year.

    Return (yield) on the bond for Rahul is 8.70% and can be arrived as follows (1000 – 920) / 920.

    Thus Zero Coupon Bond is nothing but a terminology used for a bond that is issued at a discounted price and redeemed at par on maturity (Source: TATA Mutual Fund)
