You asked: What are corporate bonds?

Corporate bonds are a type of asset. They are loans to UK and international companies.

The company pays interest on the loan and promises to repay the debt at a certain point in time. They are seen as riskier than gilts because companies are more likely to fail to repay the loan than the UK Government. But they often offer a higher rate of return to balance out this higher risk.
