Secure Investments



  T Bonds and GILTS

Due to the variety of options on the market and the unpredictability of today economic climate, it is difficult to identify one safe investment. But some investment categories are significantly safer than others. For example, certificates of deposit (CDs), money market accounts, municipal bonds and Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS) are among the safest types of investments, but major players institutions and companies mainly invest in (US Treasury Bonds, British GILTS where some might say gilt-edged security).

We all know the most secure investment is involved in giving money to a bank that then returns it with interest after a certain time. All bank accounts, including are guaranteed by the likes of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) Financial Service Compensation Scheme (FSCS), these government-guaranteed institutions will step in if there's a default on any of the securities.




 Municipal bonds

Municipal bonds are debt issued by towns, cities, counties and states. These bonds are very safe if the issuer is not likely to default, and because they are tax-exempt, they can have very high yields given their level of safety. TIPS are debts issued by the federal government with par value matched to inflation, so investors are protected from the risk of inflation while taking on the debt that is highly likely to be repaid.
