In addition to receiving the face value of a bond at maturity, an investor also receives periodic interest payments over the life of the bonds. These periodic payments are called annuities.

Annuities is an investment product sold by many banks today in which the customer invests his or her savings under the terms of a contract that promises a stream of income in the future (either fixed or variable in amount).
