This dataset consists of ten-year nominal yields on UK government bonds from the bank of England. The ten-year government bond yield is considered a standard indicator of long-term interest rates.

Generally, a government bond is issued by a national government and is denominated in the country’s own currency. Bonds issued by national governments in foreign currencies are normally referred to as sovereign bonds. The yield required by investors to loan funds to government reflects inflation expectations and the likelihood that the debt will be repaid.

Historically, the United Kingdom Government Bond for ten-year yield reached an all-time high of 16.09% in November of 1981 and a record low of 0.52% in August of 2016. The ten-year nominal yield as of the quarter ending September 30th, 2018 is 1.42%.
