Are government bonds considered risk-free investments?
Curious about risk-free investment
Government bonds are often considered to be relatively safe or lowrisk investments, but they are not necessarily completely riskfree. The creditworthiness and stability of the government issuing the bond can affect the risk level, as well as factors such as interest rate changes and inflation. However, in general, government bonds are viewed as safer than many other types of investments and can be a good choice for riskaverse investors. In India, government bonds are issued by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and are known as "Sovereign Gold Bonds."
