How to evaluate corporate capital?Evaluation and Reporting

The Order Book for Retail Bonds (ORB) has proved a useful addition to the UK investing landscape. With shares about as attractive to most people as rabies and the average cash savings account paying no more than a bag of marbles, the London Stock Exchange’s ORB has made corporate bonds the answer to at least some income-seekers’ prayers.

Such is the demand for retail bonds – that is, corporate bonds from big companies like Lloyds, Tesco, and Severn Trent aimed at everyday private investors, and listed on the ORB – that there’s even been an opportunity to stag new issues for a small profit.

But what if you want to buy a portfolio of directly held corporate bonds, perhaps as an alternative to investing in a corporate bond fund or ETF?

Is that feasible?

Let’s leave aside for today the question of whether or not corporate bonds should have a place in our portfolios. Some say yes, some say no. Most of the passive investing experts we like on Monevator skip corporate bonds altogether in their model ETF portfolios.

Personally, I’m not mad keen on owning large helpings of corporate bonds, and I’d certainly stress they’re no direct swap for government bonds. Corporate bonds will behave very differently in a deep recession to UK government bonds, for a start. They’re also far more likely to default.
