Learn about investing in bonds in a rising interest rate environment. Interest rates and the prices of bonds have an inverse relationship, meaning when interest rates rise, bond prices will decline.There is no single profile of a rising rate environment, as small incremental increases over an extended period of time will more easily allow the markets to adjust, while larger increases over a shorter time period could prove more disruptive.
