TL;DR.In a traditional world, an investor's first choice with respect to investing in a fixed income product is fixed deposits offered by banks. This is a fairly simple product that has been there for decades.

An alternative fixed income asset is a non-market linked asset that generates either regular cash flows or a lump sum benefit at maturity.
