What is an income investment trust?

An investment trust is a collective investment in which all participating investors’ money is used to purchase a stocks and shares portfolio. The broad range of holdings on offer – some investment trusts have over 100 - can help to spread the risk for individual investors, as the failure of any one holding is less likely to damage the overall portfolio.

What is the difference between investment trusts and other collective investments?

Unlike other types of collective investment such as unit trusts, investment trusts are not open-ended. An investment trust is a company that invests in other companies and issues a fixed number of shares. Investment trusts are listed on the London Stock Exchange, so they are owned by their shareholders. If access to your capital at short notice is a key priority, bear in mind that an investment trust is a long term investment.

Choosing the best income investment trusts

An income investment trust can offer the potential for high yields for those who are seeking a regular source of income. With the latest wave of pension reforms in 2015 meaning that purchasing an annuity is no longer a requirement, many investors may likely to be seeking other ways of securing a reliable income from their hard-earned money.
