Our Structure

In the century and a half that investment trusts have been a tried and tested means of investing in your future, a fair amount of jargon has built up around them: ‘gearing’, ‘buy-backs’, ‘discounts’ and ‘premiums’, ‘closed-ended’ versus ‘open ended’, etc.

But it’s not as complicated as it sounds.

Here’s our easy-to-understand collection of short films explaining what investment trusts are, how they work and why they’ve proved so popular with investors of all kinds.

Investment trusts are UK public companies and are not authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.  You may not get back the amount invested and please bear in mind that past performance is not a guide to future performance.
