A risk rating of 40% or lower means a low-risk market with favorable market conditions for government bond investments.

Bond Risk Ratings at a Glance
The bond market is one of the major markets for investment. The global bond market’s estimated size is 100 trillion USD, making it bigger than the global stock market. Out of this figure, 40 trillion USD is the size of the US bond market. This makes bonds a lucrative investment and essential to have a diverse investment portfolio.
The bond market might not be as unpredictable or unstable as the stock market, but there are still times when market conditions might be unfavorable with a high-risk environment. This makes it necessary for investors to monitor market conditions and the current risk environment constantly.
