Gilt Market

DMO Gilt Purchase and Sale Service Information


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.

If you wish to apply to become a member of the DMO’s Approved Group of Investors, or view the Terms and Conditions of the DMO Purchase and Sale Service, or download an application form to buy/sell gilts via the DMO’s Purchase and Sales Service, the relevant documents and application forms are available via the Computershare website.

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. Its commission charges for smaller transactions may be lower than the charges made for buying or selling gilts through a stockbroker or bank.

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.

The Approved Group of Investors and Purchase and Sale Service is primarily directed to, and intended for, residents of the United Kingdom.

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.
