The issuer of the bond receives cash when the bond is issued, and must pay the face value of the bond (also called the principal of the bond) at a certain time in the future called the maturity (or expiry) of the bond. Other payments by the issuer of the bond to the buyer of the bond, called coupon payments, may also be made at predetermined times in the future.
