Investment Trusts & Fund Launches

What Are Investment Trusts & Fund Launches?

Similar to other IPOs Investment trusts and funds will come to the market from time to time and through their prospectus highlight their investment strategy and income proposition. Investment Trusts are companies that are domiciled in the UK and invest in shares and securities of other companies globally. They are listed on the London Stock Exchange and therefore freely tradable on the open market.

  2. Prospectus and KIID document released - The investment company will prepare and release a Prospectus and KIID (Key Investor Information Document) which clients should fully read and digest before making any decision to invest.
  3. Offer Period – At this point our dealers will start taking orders. A launch date is set for the final date and time by which all applications must be received.

  5. Fund launched – The fund is open and clients can now buy or sell units.
