A fixed interest security is basically a loan to the government or a company.

With most, you get interest payments for as long as you hold the security. The amount of interest you will get (called the coupon) is expressed as a percentage of the nominal value. If you hold a fixed interest security to the end of its term, you should get back the nominal value as long as the issuing company doesn't run into financial difficulty.
