Unit trusts pool the resources of investors into one large fund, which is then divided into shares, or ‘units’. Unit trusts have different levels of risk and return, and they are managed by professional fund managers.
Sometimes investors would find it very difficult to capture investment opportunities in overseas markets due to high transaction costs and lack of overseas markets information. Unit trusts offer an efficient and cost effective way for you to access these markets.
With unit trusts, investments can be spread across various instruments, industries and countries.
