F&C Investments

About Us

F&C can trace its roots back to 1868, when Foreign & Colonial Investment Trust, the world’s first collective investment fund was launched. In 2014 we became part of BMO Global Asset Management, and ultimately the BMO Financial Group, which has been helping millions of customers meet a spectrum of financial needs for 200 years.

Through the years, F&C has grown as a business and evolved to become a global organisation. Partnering with BMO Global Asset Management has allowed us to combine the key strengths of both businesses in order to give our customers even greater investment options. We currently manage 10 Investment Trusts providing a range of investment opportunities including access to equities, bonds, property and private equity.

The Foreign & Colonial Investment Trust was launched in 1868, bringing the benefits of investing to a wider audience. A lot has happened since then. Yet as we approach 150 years, the world’s oldest collective investment fund is still going strong. If you’re looking to generate your capital and income over the longer term, this could be the investment for you.
