Gilts are bonds issued by certain national governments. The term is of British origin, and originally referred to the debt securities issued by the Bank of England, which had a gilt (or gilded) edge. Hence, they are called gilt-edged securities, or gilts for short. The term is also sometimes used in Ireland and some British Commonwealth countries, South Africa and India. When a reference is made to gilts, what is generally meant is British gilts unless otherwise specified. The description below applies to the UK gilt market. ONS data reveal that about two-thirds of all gilts are held by insurance companies and pension funds. During 2009 large quantities of gilts were created and purchased by the Bank of England under its policy of quantitative easing.

The term "Gilt Account" is also a term used by the Reserve Bank of India to refer to a constituent account maintained by a custodian bank for maintenance and servicing of dematerialized Government Securities owned by a retail customer.

Gilt-edge bonds are typically government bonds with average risk and good returns. Gilt markets are the tradable forums of these bonds. Mutual funds invest mostly in these markets. Here, many are saying that a gilt bond is low-risk, but that is not so. One very large and typical risk is that the value of currency will decrease by the maturation time. In these cases, the government should typically devalue the bond by increasing the interest rate, but often it doesn't happen.
