Three Steps to Get Started
- Choose your investment trust. What you opt for will depend on your goals, risk profile and preferences.
- Buy shares in the investment trust. Simply select a share dealing platform or speak to a stockbroker to get set up. Choose your account type; for example, a Self Invested Personal Pension, an Individual Saving Account or a Junior Individual Saving Account. You can either contribute a single lump sum or set up regular monthly payments.
- Stay informed. Our website makes it easy for you to check the dividend yield and share price performance of your selected investment trust. You can also subscribe to receive email updates from our fund managers.
