Gearing
This is the ratio between a company's share capital and its borrowings. High gearing means a proportionally large amount of debt and low gearing means a small amount of debt.

Gilts
Bonds issued by the UK Government. Conventional gilts pay a fixed percentage of the nominal price. Index-linked gilts rise each year by a fixed percentage above the rate of inflation.
