Investment Trust

An investment trust is a closed ended collective investment scheme (CIS) with a set or limited number of shares that pools together assets of a number of different investors with the aim of increasing flexibility and lowering costs. Investment Trusts are companies that trade in their own right which means that the price of the shares are subject to supply and demand. Unlike an open ended fund, the manager does not have to deal with fund flows and therefore never a forced seller/buyer.
