Gilt Edged Bond

A private-issued, investment grade bond. Only blue chip companies issue gilt edged bonds and, for that reason, they have high ratings. Gilt edged bonds are considered sufficiently low-risk that the law allows banks to invest in them. In addition to being low-risk, investment-grade bonds are low-return, greatly reducing the cost on the issuer. They are considered the next safest bond to a Treasury security.

gilt

A bond issued through the United Kingdom Treasury and guaranteed by the British government. The market for gilt-edged securities is similar to the market for U.S. Treasury securities, with a high degree of safety, liquidity, and maturity selection.
