Bond duration refers to how long it takes for the price of a bond to be paid back from internal cash flow. A higher duration bond is more risky, and the price can be much more volatile than lower duration bonds. It can get highly complex, but the most important thing for an investor to understand is that there is such a thing and will have an impact on the investment.
