Most popular investment trusts

Investment trusts can help diversify your portfolio as the trust buys and sells a mix of investments on behalf of its shareholders.

Remember, the value of investments can fall as well as rise and you could get back less than you invest. If you’re not sure about investing, seek independent advice.

Investment trusts can help diversify your portfolio as the trust buys and sells a mix of investments on behalf of its shareholders. Some concentrate on a particular industry or country, while others focus on a wider mix of regions and sectors. Unlike funds, investment trusts can be traded on the stock exchange at any time, and their price is therefore set by supply and demand and not purely by the value of the trust’s investments. Read more about investment trusts
