What is an investment trust?
- An investment trust is a company listed on a stock exchange that buys the shares or assets of other companies with the aim of making a return for investors
- Each trust has a formal objective setting out its aims
- Investment trusts are run by independent Board of Directors who appoint a fund manager to make investment decisions.
- Shares in investment trusts can be bought easily though a share dealing service, a stockbroker and some Independent Financial Advisers.
