Debenture

A bond that is backed only by the general credit worthiness of the issuing corporation. No specific property is pledged as security behind the loan.

In today's challenged economy, you would be less likely to invest in this type of bond. More conservative investments are GICs, Canada Savings Bonds (CSB) or other guaranteed forms of return.

Talk to your financial adviser as to what best suits your needs.
