Latham Advises On Ukraine’s USD $1.25 Billion Bond
A bond represents a promise by a borrower to pay a lender their principal and usually interest on a loan. Bonds are issued by governments, municipalities, and corporations. The interest rate, principal amount, and maturities will vary from one bond to the next in order to meet the goals of the bond issuer and the bond buyer.
