Well nothing new.

Gilts that also have index linking.

Unfortunately they have got very expensive. A 2.5% premium over inflation would be a dream ticket now. But yes, they trade over value and it's more like inflation minus 1.5% to maturity.

It's an inflation hedge now..if RPI went to 10% ( which it probably wont) then -1.5% might seem good.
