Welcome to the Mentor Journal!

Welcome to the Mentor Journal!

Welcome to the Mentor Journal from Bond Investment Mentor! My name is Chris Nelson and my goal is to help you become more knowledgeable about managing your institution’s fixed income investment portfolio. If you are responsible for managing the investments for your bank or credit union, or you are someone with oversight responsibilities for the investment portfolio, then this blog is for you!

I created Bond Investment Mentor as a resource to help you learn about fixed income securities and investment portfolio management. In addition, I will cover other related topics like asset-liability management, liquidity and interest rate risk, interest rates and the fixed income markets.  

I also want to make clear that the purpose of this blog is purely educational and informational.  My opinions are mine alone. Also, nothing that I discuss here constitutes a solicitation, offer or recommendation to either purchase or sell investments.  As always, You should consult with your legal, tax or other advisors before making any investment decisions.

If you haven’t had a chance to do so yet, please take some time to check out the website. In addition to learning more about my story, I’ve included a resources page containing tools and resources that helped me in my investment journey. And don’t forget to check out the Bond Investment Mentor podcast!

I welcome and encourage your questions and feedback. If you have a topic that you would like me to cover, please let me know. I look forward to hearing from you as we explore the world of fixed income investing!
