Hi, Thanks for sharing. We can see some company earn interest from their free cash. Do you know if those company invest in government bond or others to earn interest? Is there any safer bond or investment choice for company with free cash instead of putting inside bank for fix deposit?

bonds are usually debt instruments and is a bit different from fixed deposit. it depends on company whether they would put their spare cash into government bonds. There will be those that do that but on a shorter duration basis.
