Long Dated Gilts

Recommended Posts

Think I'm about to making a small investment into long dated gilts. (via managed fund within an isa)

This isn't because I know they are going to do well. I have little idea how they or any other financial markets are going to perform --- I'm not an professional bonds investor!

Its because they're a sort of hedge against house prices. If my long date gilts loose money, then its very likely that the cost of mortgages (particularly fixed rate ones) are rising, and so houses will probably loose value. And vice-versa.

Any comments on this investment strategy?
