Our investment trust products

There are many investment products available on the market, from us and from other financial services companies.

We offer a wide range of products, mentioned throughout the site. Share prices go up and down. If you sell your shares at a lower price than you bought them, you will have lost money. You should be comfortable with this risk before investing. See Step 2 for more information on risk, if you haven’t already.

Here is the complete list. Each trust prepares an Annual Report which shows the results for its financial year and provides commentary from the Fund Manager. It also contains the formal investment objective and policy which covers all of the detail on what and where each trust can invest.
