unsecured bond

Definition

A type of debt certificate that is typically required to offer a fixed rate of interest or annual sum until maturity. These bonds are generally either considered to be discounted or interest bearing, and are primarily issued by corporations or by the government. Unlike a secured bond, an unsecured bond is not backed by any collateral.
