Jacket Text

The Sterling Bonds and Fixed Income Handbook aims to fill the knowledge gap for sterling-base investors and their advisors. Whilst investors in the equity markets can rely on numerous resources to select stocks and build portfolios, there is little information available for those who wish to buy bonds. This book takes the reader through the key features of gilts and sterling corporate bonds and offers a practical guide to putting money to work in this important and profitable asset class.
