The craziest bond investment?

Anyone who has ever borrowed money has worried about what would happen if something bad happened to them, and they had trouble repaying the loan. As a borrower, you run the risk that your home, your car and other assets could be at risk if you cannot make your payments. This is because there is a general rule that lenders’ interests rank ahead of borrowers’ interests when dealing with a troubled borrowers’ assets.
