What type of bond does not provide voting rights?



Our response:

Thank you for your question, Peter.

Bonds do not typically come with voting rights. When you buy a bond, you’re lending your money to a company or government for a set period of time (the term). There are bonds called “convertible bonds”, which may come with the right to purchase common shares under certain conditions. Those common shares may come with voting rights.

A voting right, is usually attached to common shares, or equity, in a company, and is the right of the shareholder to vote on matters such as electing directors and corporate actions such as issuing securities.
