What are unit trust's

A Unit Trust is a portfolio of financial assets which are managed by a professional fund manager. These assets may include stocks, property, and bonds.

Unit Trusts are a useful investment as they can accommodate the tax advantages extended by ISAs. They help provide the opportunity to benefit from a stock market investment without further liability to Income or Capital Gains Tax.

Unit Trusts are often seen as a crucial component of a Stocks and Shares ISA. They can offer a range of other benefits to investors. Unit Trusts can provide solutions for medium to long term capital growth and income.

When used as part of a focused tax-planning exercise, Unit Trusts can provide investors with the flexibility to use their annual Capital Gains Tax allowance.

Furthermore, when used in conjunction with a Trust, they also offer an alternative solution for investments on behalf of children.
