- Unit trust investment objective: investment to generate income or growth through big and small firms and in different geographical areas.
- Unit trust is one form of investment on shares of companies, properties, commodity or other instruments.
- The price of unit trust is dependent on the base price of each unit trust and the performance of the instrument selected by the investors like shares/unit trust or others.
Unit trust investments require a minimal capital outlay as most funds accept both small and large investments, making it affordable for the average investor to get started.
2. Portfolio Diversification
Unit Trust investments allow the investor to invest in a broader range of securities than they would be able to when investing on their own. Diversification minimises exposure to any one type of risk.
3. Continuous Professional Management
Unit trust funds are managed by professional and full-time fund managers who have the necessary skills, relevant experience and dedicated resources to maximise investments. This takes the worry out of the day-to-day decision whether to buy or sell a financial asset – the fund manager does it all for you.
