  8. IMF Says CBDCs Could Boost Middle East's Financial Inclusion, Payment Efficiency

    Central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) may not be essential to achieving intended policy goals, instead addressing underlying constraints and improving other digital payment systems may be a more practical alternative, a survey of 19 central banks in the Middle East and Central Asia (ME&CA) region by the International Monetary Fund's (IMF) has said.

In general the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Unlike individual bonds, most bond funds do not have a maturity date, so avoiding losses caused by price volatility by holding them until maturity is not possible.

Lower-quality debt securities generally offer higher yields, but also involve greater risk of default or price changes due to potential changes in the credit quality of the issuer. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to loss.
