Investment trusts have become increasingly popular in recent years and people have been asking us for more information: Why buy trusts? What are the key differences between open-ended funds and trusts? How do trusts deliver a stable income?
Around 10% of poll respondents said they weren’t sure of the difference between open-ended and trusts. In line with our new research, we’ve also got a series of five short videos introducing investment trusts and how they work.
