Gilt yield

The cash value of annual gilt coupon payments divided by the market value of the gilt. The yield varies over time in line with changes in the market value of the gilt (this changes continuously in response to changes in market demand and supply). The current yield of existing gilts at any time will determine the rate at which governments may borrow new money.
