British Land bond offering by fred
Am I missing something here, or is this the worst bond offering ever? Duration 'till 2020 Coupon: 0 to 0.5% !!! Conversion at 2020: at 20-27.5% higher than launch share price. I would have thought that even a blue chip company would have been paying ~2.5% coupon.

I've been reading: http://www.which.co.uk/money/savings-and-investments/guides/corporate-bonds-and-gilts/how-gilts-and-corporate-bonds-work/ begin quote If the UK government wanted to raise 100m pounds, it would issue one million gilts at the value of 100 each. This is known as the 'nominal...

Children's bank accounts by Andrew Gabriel[_3_]
Looked at children's savings accounts on http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/savings/child-savings-tax-free and was very dissapointed with what's on offer - poor rates or undue restrictions. I know it's not fasionable to be saving nowadays, but I wanted to set up something that would enable a child...

Travel Insurance for the over 65s by [email protected]

We used to insure with STA - because we have been on a number of their trips including volunteering at the Elephant Nature Park in...

Why are currency conversion quotes the wrong way round? by Thomas[_6_]
I notice that sites such as Google Finance quote the pound to dollar conversion rates in the form GBP/USD = 1.4784. I would read this as "GBP per USD = 1.4784" or equivalently "1.4784 GBP per USD" which is obviously the wrong way round. When we quote speeds for example we say mph (or m/h) = 50 -...

Cooperative Bank Asking for National Insurance Number After 15 Years by [email protected]
I have received a letter from the Cooperative Bank saying that they have to suspend payments to my ISA unless I provide my National Insurance number. They've only got a dummy number stored. I've had the ISA about fifteen years, so if they needed it, they must have had it all this time. Have they...

Most people on over 100k already pay 60% Tax by Thomas[_6_]
Alistair Darling introduced a progressive reduction in personal allowance for incomes over 100k which the Tories did not abolish and Labour certainly won't. Because of the way incomes are distributed, this means that the vast majority of people with taxable incomes over 100k are paying a...

Greek bond yields by Jim
I don't understand Greek 10 year bond yields. Last time I looked (about 2 weeks ago) they were ~ 10%. I see a big haircut or total default as a certainty, so why aren't they ~ 90% ? Possible answer: The public do not own Greek govt bonds - only sovereign central banks. No individual or fund in...
