Word of the Day
Investment in companies which have no stockmarket listing. Also called unquoted investments. Some investment trusts and other collective funds specialise in spotting good unlisted companies to invest in. These are usually small, fast-growing companies. The other way of investing in unlisted companies is through Enterprise Investment Schemes and Venture Capital Trusts both of which offer tax rebates to encourage investment.
