30-Year Treasury Bond

The HTML to link to this page
 

The 30-year Treasury Bond is a debt obligation issued by the US Treasury and backed by the full faith of the US government. The 30-year Treasury Bond has a 30 year maturity. The 30-year Treasury Bond generally pays higher interest rates than shorter-term Treasury notes due to greater risk associated with the longer maturity. However, the 30-year Treasury Bond, like other US government securities, is considered a relatively risk-free investment. At one time, the 30-year Treasury Bond was considered the benchmark US bond but the 30-year treasury bond has since been replaced by the 10-year bond in most portfolios. The Treasury stopped issuing the 30-year Treasury bond in 2001 but recently announced its intent to hold a 30-year Treasury Bond auction in early 2006.
