Fixed income investing is the most common form of investment solution that is recommended to new investors whose risk tolerance may be very low. Fixed income products such as treasury bills and bonds, cocoa bills, fixed deposits and Certificates of Deposit (CDs) may be the most ideal investment products for certain investors based on their investment objectives, income and age.
