Corona Virus Related Bonds - On Freetrade

The government borrows in the financial markets, by selling bonds.

A bond is a promise to make payments to whoever holds it on certain dates. There is a large payment on the final date - in effect the repayment.

Interest is also paid to whoever owns the bond in the meantime. So it’s basically an interest-paying “IOU”.

Anyone have any suggestions on Corona Virus Related Bonds that are available on Freetrade?

Any of the ‘UK Gilts’ ETFs will represent these bonds. You won’t be able to specifically buy the bonds being issued but just a representative pool.
