There are a lot of impediments to the development of bond market in Bangladesh. The bond market is still at a budding stage. It is attributed by a limited supply of debt instruments, especially long-term instruments. Consequently, the reliable benchmark for long-term bonds or debentures does not exist. The market is illiquid and trading is motionless. It is slowed down by the relatively high interest rate bearing risk-free national savings scheme, though interest has been reduced a little bit in recent years. In addition, the issuance process of bond is burdensome and costly, which becomes a disincentive to the development of effective bond market. Finally, the investor base has to be extended in parallel with a suitable investor education. Recommended measures must be undertaken for developing the bond market.
