Avi Erlander currently holds corporate bonds yielding six percent and government bonds yielding four percent. He is fascinated by the world of finance and is always on the lookout for higher yields. In 2021, VanCanada Airlines issued 20-year bonds paying a yield of 12 percent. Mr. Erlander called Joanne, a financial analyst, for information.
