Bonds were originally created to provide investors with a fixed return on their investment. The disadvantages of bonds are that they can be difficult to understand, they do not offer an immediate liquidation option, and they may not be suitable for all investor types.
The most important disadvantage is that bonds are not as liquid as other financial assets such as stocks and mutual funds due to the restrictive nature of the bond market. This means that investors cannot quickly sell their bonds for cash in case they need it. Another disadvantage is the fact that interest rates on bonds tend to be lower than those on stocks and mutual funds.
