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.

The details of our most popular investment trusts are updated weekly, using the number of purchase deals placed by our Smart Investor customers during the previous week .

You may be interested to see where other customers have chosen to invest their money. However, this may have limited value in making a decision on the investments that are most suitable for you. This is not a personal recommendation and should not be seen as independent advice.

Some investment trusts 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.

You should remember the investment goals you have set, and consider if an investment helps you build a diversified and balanced portfolio.
