If the investor holds the bond for 15 years, and the required return remains the same, what happens to the value of the bond? There is no change in value since the required rate of return does not change. The value decreases because there is less time remaining to collect interest for the investor. The value decreases because the required rate of return went up. The value increases because the bond is closer to maturity.
