Competition: win one of 20 copies of The Sterling Bonds and Fixed Income Handbook

Mark Glowrey has written an excellent guide to the UK’s bond markets, covering everything from gilts, linkers, corporate bonds and high yield, to dealing, settlement, tax and covenants. There’s also some great bond market history and anecdote – I like the story of the two brothers who worked as bond brokers at the London Stock Exchange. Both had been awarded the Military Cross in World War 2, but the second brother had been awarded the Military Cross and bar. The nickname of the first brother was “The Coward”.

We have 20 copies of the book to give away. You can win one by tweeting us (we’re @bondvigilantes) the answer to this question. Add the hashtag #BVbook to help us find your entry in our inbox please.

See here for terms and conditions. Tweet us your entries by midday on Friday 22nd March. The 20 winners will be contacted shortly afterwards.


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.
