Mutual Funds - What are Gilt schemes?

Gilt schemes invest in government bonds, money market securities or some combination of these. They have medium to long-term maturities, typically of over one year and have moderate returns. Since the issuer is the central or state Governments, these funds have reduced risk of default and hence offer better protection of principal.
