Status obligation

Long-term fixed-income securities issued by the state. They are issued for 10, 15 and 30-year terms (treasury notes have the same characteristics, but their term ranges from 2 to 5 years). Over their lifespan, these assets yield a fixed interest rate paid through annual coupons. Some of these issues are carried out as segregated securities or "strips", which allow the principal and each of the coupons that make up the original bond to be purchased separately.
