negotiable instruments
Explanation:
Negotiable Instrument
A piece of paper representing ownership of a financial asset or debt, and capable of being traded in the money market; eg Bill of Exchange, Promissory Note.

Corporate Bond
A debt security issued by corporations in return for cash from lenders and investors. A bond holder is a creditor of the issuer and not a shareholder. The issuer of a bond is effectively a borrower, and is required to pay interest to creditors throughout the life of the bond.

As you can see from the definition, a corporate bond is one type of negotiable instrument. The former is the larger context while the latter is an example.

Negotiable instruments


Explanation:
I believe you are mistaken in thinking them synonyms. "Negotiable instruments" refers to a document, e.g., a stock certificate, representing ownership, which can be transferred. Cheques used to be negotiable instruments when endorsed, i.e., if you had a cheque payable to you, another person was entitled to pay it into his account if you first signed it on the back, but in many or most countries this is no longer so. "Corporate bonds" are something else.

Negotiable instrument = A widely recognized commercial paper that meets approved legal and financial standards and can be transferred from one party to another by endorsement, such as a check, bank draft, money order, bearer bonds, traveler's check, certificate of deposit, or promissory note, payable on demand or at a future date to the order of a named person (payee) or to the bearer.
