Put and Zero Coupon Bonds

Understanding Debt Puts and Debt Zeroes

[By Staff Writers]

Put Bonds

Put bonds are so-called because they allow doctor-investors and other bondholders to give bonds (put) back to the issuer at par on specified dates prior to maturity. Put bonds have either a fixed or variable interest rate and may have single or multiple tender dates.

Furthermore, they can be either mandatory (in which case the physician-investor has a specified period of time to keep the bonds at the new rate); or optional (in which case the physician-investor has a specified time period to tender the bonds).

Zero Coupon Bonds

These bonds are offered at a deep discount to par face value, and there are no coupon interest payments. Instead, the interest is reinvested and compounded semi-annually and paid to the physician-investor at maturity.
