Investment Comparison - Gilt Returns
Gilt yields are published daily by the UK debt management office http://www.dmo.gov.uk/ . The table below shows the yields for a number of representative gilt issues as published on the 3rd November 2010.
The gilts shown are conventional issues up to maturity in 2015. Beyond 2015 there is less certainty regarding inflation levels. In order to get an estimate on gilt returns in real terms beyond 2015, the issues shown in the table that mature after this date are index-linked. That is the principle represented by the gilt increases in line with inflation.
UK tax payers would normally be required to pay tax on gilt coupons. This brings the net yield down from the level shown in the column “Gross Yield” to whatever level is implied by the rate of tax applicable to that tax payer at that time. In addition there may well be brokerage, and other transaction based tax and charges, associated with purchasing or selling a gilt.
Note that Geo Green Power are not financial advisors and are not qualified to dispense tax or investment advice. However, based on publicly available information we have indicated diagrammatically that 1% would be a reasonable representation of a typical net return on an investment in Gilts as of November 2010. This figure of 1% is not intended to apply literally to any specific bond or group of bonds, it merely gives an approximate indication for comparison purposes.
We found your service efficient and enquiries polite and considerate. I would definitely recommend your services to anyone who is looking for solar, in fact we have another farm building which will be sorted after Christmas, and would think we will be contacting you again. Thank you once again.
I have been very pleased with the speedy and efficient service we have received. Everyone in the Geo Green Power team has been pleasant to deal with and all aspects of the installation were carried out in a timely and effective manner. Many thanks for making our lives easier!
Thank you for all your hard work. Everything was completed efficiently and professionally and I’m now saving and making cash thanks to my solar PV system. I like checking my meter just to see how much money I've made! Solar panels are a great investment and I’m recommending Geo Green Power to everyone I meet.
