Our view on the sector

Funds in this sector invest in bonds issued by the British government. They're typically viewed as lower risk because it's unlikely the UK government would default on its debts and be unable to pay the interest due to bondholders. They're still volatile at times though and their prices can go up and down due to wider economic factors, such as changes in interest rates. UK gilt funds probably won't achieve spectacular rates of growth. But they could be a good addition to a more conservative portfolio. They could also be used to diversify a portfolio focused on company shares or corporate bonds.
