What are Investment Trusts?
Investment Trusts are listed companies with Shares quoted on the London Stock Exchange. They invest in other companies’ Shares, as well as property, fixed-interest securities and unquoted securities.
Trusts have a board of directors who look after shareholder interests, and professional Fund Managers who look after each individual investment on your behalf.
They’re a popular choice because they tend to have competitive fees, and can sometimes trade at a discount to its net asset value. Like Shares, they are traded during stock market hours.
However, it’s essential to know if Investment Trusts are the right option for you before you commit to anything.
