English term or phrase: bonds held up best on safe-haven
Market trends.

Equities remained under severe pressure for most of the period [...]. US bonds held up best on safe-haven.

I don't get the exact meaning of "on safe-haven". Does it mean "because these US bonds are safe-haven assets" ? Thank you.
