What is an investment trust?
Investment trusts are listed companies that invest in the shares of other companies or fixed income securities, unquoted securities or property.
As a listed company its shares are quoted on the London Stock Exchange and the share price is determined by demand and supply.
How are they different to funds?
Investment trusts are closed-ended companies. This means they have a fixed number of shares in issue, unlike Funds that are open-ended investment companies ('OEICs') or Unit Trusts. Investment Trusts are also listed companies and must have an independent board of directors that are obliged to answer to their shareholders.
