Don't miss the ISA boat, says AITC

21 March 2005
The Association of Investment Trust Companies (AITC) has published deadlines for investment trust ISAs from some of the major member investment trusts and their managers.

Investors who want to make the most of their ISA allowance should check the individual deadlines as some are up to a week before the start of the new financial year on April 5th.

The AITC has also outlined some tempting special offers on various ISA investment trusts, some of which are running until May and June.

"As the ISA deadline fast approaches, investors should not necessarily assume that they can leave their investment trust ISA purchase until the eleventh hour," advises Annabel Brodie-Smith, communications director for the AITC.

"Investment trusts and their managers can have different systems in place to accommodate the 'cooling off' period, so it's worth finding out what these are before the end of the tax year.

"By investing in a variety of companies on your behalf, investment trusts can spread investment risk. With good long-term performance, entry levels from £50 per month, and no penalties for stopping and starting contributions, they can suit a variety of budgets and risk profiles."
