Product Description


With More than one trillion dollars in bonds outstanding, the Canadian fixed income market is enormous. In fact, its daily trading volume is almost five times that of the equity markets. Yet investors and even many financial advisors know little about it. In Your Best Interest demystifies the retail fixed income market, from the basics of a bond to the various products available to a full discussion of the mathematics of bonds and the bond market. It also provides useful tips on selecting the right advisor. In Your Best Interest gives you the tools to meet your income and retirement needs by making the retail fixed income market less expensive, more accessible, and more efficient.

"Here's everthing you really need to know about the Canadian bond market." (Investor's Digest of Canada 2006-03-31) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


“Hank Cunningham is a respected fixed-income professional who has demystified the bond markets for the retail investor. His knowledge and experience provide extremely useful insights into the debt capital markets.” — Jeremy Fleming, Managing Director, Wealth Distribution, Foreign Exchange and Investment Products, TD Securities

5.0 out of 5 stars bond book April 14 2009
Alot has been added from the first edition which I also found very useful. This is the type of no-nonsense financial advice that Canadians need today. Should someone have heeded his advice they would have avoided the blowups in ABCP, and income trusts.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars radiates common sense Sept. 10 2009
This book radiates common sense. It takes investors to the natural realization that investing directly in bonds will trump funds, or complex structures like Principle Protected notes or insurance contracts. A product engineered by a financial institution will always be in the best interest of the institution, not the investor.

This book also strikes an unusually nice balance between comprehensive coverage of the subject and a style understandable to the average investor. As an Investment Advisor, I have given this book to my clients, and have got nothing but positive feedback. Keep up the good work Hank!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Insights June 4 2010
This book is very insightful into the often obscure world of the bond market. I am an experienced financial professional, and I thought it was one of the most practical books that an investor can read. Even though I am primarily an equity investor, this book has great insights and should be read by anyone that is thinking about retirement.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book will pay for itself many times over. March 15 2011
By Arbutus
For anyone interested in Canadian market bond investing.
Well written, simple, and to the point. Very good insights from someone experienced in the field. He gives many tips and points of advice as well as good perspective on the new "products" (read ABCP) that come up from time to time in the fixed income market place and what to watch for. Very valuable is his comparison of online Canadian brokerage accounts and the typical markups on bonds (ie. the hidden commission that is never disclosed) one should expect. This alone was something I had not been able to find in any other media source except his book. For this reason alone I would buy the book.
Finding good information for "retail" (small) bond investors is tough; this book is it. I've signed it out twice from the library now, and decided I should actually purchase a copy (the 3rd edition when it comes out in 2012). The financial industry does not promote individual bond investing but the majority of the funds of the big boys is not in the equity market, it is in the bond market....this was a very interesting statistic from the book.
It was because of help from books like this one and the old Financial
Times/Globe and Mail Fixed Income guide that retail investors can begin to piece things together and we can begin to make informed decisions.
