* The coupon divided by the price. Where the coupon is partly dependent on Libor it uses market based Libor forecasts at each coupon date over the next 12 months.
** The estimated yield from holding a bond to maturity including interest and capital repayment and assuming interest is re-invested at the same yield. Please note this calculation may be adversely affected by features in bond such as calls or prepayments. Where the coupon is partly dependent on Libor it uses market based forecasts of Libor until the maturity date.
Please note that the current yield and yield to maturity are an estimated return calculation and not guaranteed. All yields shown are gross of taxation and our Service Fee.
