Bond Vigilantes book – make a donation to support Cancer Research

To celebrate the 5th anniversary of the Bond Vigilantes blog, we’ve put together a book of 100 of our articles.  From the first signs of weakness in the US housing market through to the disaster of the European Financial Stability Facility, this is an honest record of what the team have been thinking through the most turbulent period in financial markets since the Great Depression.  You can also find out about Monster Munch price inflation, and cringe at Richard Woolnough’s terrible punning blog titles  (“Icelandic geysers say No”).

M&G has paid for all printing costs, so that all proceeds go straight to Cancer Research UK.  The amount you donate is entirely voluntary – we suggest £10, but for our investment bank contacts, the sky is the limit really.  There’s also a free e-book version available for you.

Click here to get hold of a copy of the Bond Vigilantes book.  There’s also a quick video below talking about the blog’s anniversary.  Thanks very much for your support and comments over the past few years – we’ve enjoyed writing it, and we’ve learnt a lot from it – not least that I must never, ever, ever, write about Scottish Independence again.


The value of investments will fluctuate, which will cause prices to fall as well as rise and you may not get back the original amount you invested. Past performance is not a guide to future performance.
