Bond yield

In credit markets, valuation is reflected in the yield on the debt instrument. The bond yield represents the return to an investor who owns the bond and can be defined in various ways.

The current yield is one of the simplest representations of yield. It is the ratio of total annual cash flows to the bond holder relative to the current market price of the bond.

Current yield = Annual cash inflows/Market price
