Do you want to invest in the stock market but don't have the
expertise to choose the right shares? Afraid you won't know when
to sell shares after you have bought them?
If you want to leave such decisions to experts then a unit
trust is for you. In addition to professional management of your
savings, a unit trust can invest in a larger number of companies
than most individual investors - often shares in over 100
companies are held in a fund.
By pooling individual savers' funds into one large investment
fund, a unit trust can reduce the risk an individual would take
by holding shares in only a few companies.
Some unit trust funds hold over £10,000,000,000 of
investors money - you can imagine how many opportunities that
fund can take advantage of!
Specialist funds exist for investors who wish to buy into
particular stock markets or share types - perhaps a Far Eastern
fund or one investing only in Ethically run company shares.
