DMO Gilt Purchase and Sale Service Information

IMPORTANT LEGAL INFORMATION - This section of the website is directed to, and intended for, residents of the United Kingdom only. If you wish to buy British Government securities or sell existing holdings and live outside the UK you are responsible for satisfying yourself that under the laws of the country in which you are resident you may lawfully use the DMO Gilt Purchase and Sale Service. Alternatively you should approach your local bank, stockbroker or financial adviser.

The DMO offers an “execution only” service for private investors who are members of the DMO's Approved Group of Investors to buy and sell gilts by post. Its commission charges for smaller transactions may be lower than the charges made for buying or selling gilts through a stockbroker or bank. Gilts may be bought or sold by completing the relevant form and sending it with the appropriate payment or gilt certificate to Computershare Investor Services PLC.

Please note that you are not able to specify the price or a maximum/minimum price at which your purchase/sale of gilts are to be made. This is not a recommendation to buy, sell or hold gilts. Neither Computershare nor DMO offer investment advice. If you are unsure of what action to take you should obtain independent financial advice. The value of gilts may go down as well as up, which may result in you receiving less than you originally invested if you sell your holding before or at redemption. A small number of gilts are not available for purchase through the Gilt Purchase and Sale Service as they are not traded on a daily basis.
