Why would an investor prefer to invest in the Debentures of a Company rather than in its Shares?


An investor would prefer to invest in debentures because:

(i) Interest on debentures is payable irrespective of the Company making a profit or incurring a loss whereas dividend on shares is paid only when the Company makes profit.
(ii) Debentures are mostly secured whereas a share is always unsecured.
