More and more parties have recently begun to recommend its suitability as a small part of a well-diversified investment portfolio. On these grounds alone, Bitcoin could be expected to have potential for further positive value development if its demand indeed increases.

Companies generally use both equity and debt to finance their investments and operations in order to keep their capital structure optimal and return on equity attractive. Debt can be obtained directly from a bank in the form of a bank loan or from the financial markets by issuing bonds.

Due to regulatory and practical reasons, usually only institutional investors and private investors classified as professional investors can make orders for corporate bonds in the primary market. The minimum settlement amount is usually EUR 100,000.
