      Hi Matthew,

      Thank you for getting in touch with finder.

      The return basically depends on your chosen provider. In addition, the value of investments can fall as well as rise, and you may get back less than you invested.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni

      Hi Diane,

      Thanks for getting in touch with finder. I hope all is well with you. :)

      Technically, the answer to your question is yes. You can invest that amount of money into Amazon Fixed income bonds. However, when it comes to term year, it depends on the terms and conditions of your transaction. We currently don’t have the specific details to this type of income bonds. For this reason, it would be a good idea to directly get in touch with Amazon or someone who is an expert in this field.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

      Have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Joshua
