CORPORATE BOND is evidence of debt owed by a corpora­tion, issued for the purpose of borrowing money, and promising to return the face value of borrowed money at maturity. Corporate bonds usually pay interest at regular intervals twice each year.

MORTGAGE-BACKED SECURITY is a security that returns principal and interest monthly as payments are received on the underlying mortgages. Mortgage-backed securities are made up of individual home mortgages guaranteed by the government and its agencies. The mortgages are packaged into pools by the Government National Mortgage Association (GNMA), the Federal National Mortgage Association (FNMA), the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp. (FHLMC) or a nongovernment-affiliated entity. Unscheduled repayment of principal can shorten the maturity of the bonds.
