All investments risk the loss of capital. When investing in gilts or bonds you should consider, among other things, the issuer's credit rating and ability to repay their debt. This will have a direct bearing on the value of the investment. Should the issuer default they may not make interest payments or be able to repay some or all of the capital. Other risks to consider in relation to gilts or bonds are inflation and unexpected increases in interest rates.
