Government bonds, or gilts, are generally considered to be low risk. Any capital gain on gilts is tax-free and with current levels of economic instability, they have become popular.

Bonds pay a fixed income, which offer more security than shares, but also a lower return.

Corporate bonds typically offer a higher return than gilts, as they are backed by companies rather than governments, and so are considered to be at higher risk of going bust.

Money Observer looks at which bonds are worth investing in, from index-linked gilts and retail bonds to bonds from emerging markets. It also highlights the top bond funds, run by the best managers, to consider buying.
