Investment Trusts

With more than 70 years of industry experience, we might be one of the investment world’s best kept secrets.

Investment Trust Shares

Shares in Schroders investment trusts are listed on the London Stock Exchange. Ordinary shares in each company can be bought and sold through a stockbroker, accountant, independent financial adviser or a share dealing service provided by many banks or buildings societies.

Alternatively, we have made it simple for investors to buy shares quickly and easily online through a range of UK online stockbrokers.

Please note that these websites are third-party sites and are not endorsed or recommended by Schroders. 

Sometimes shares will not be available to immediately purchase in the size of block and at the price you wish to pay.  In this case you can place a 'limit order' with your broker or platform so that the shares will be purchased when shares are available at the price you set.

We recommend you seek financial advice from an independant advisor before making an investment decision. If you don't already have one, you can find one at www.unbiased.co.uk.



Regular savings

It is easy to make regular investments into investment trust shares with a UK online stockbroker. Invest from as little as £50 per month in a fast and cost efficient way, allowing you to build up a holding in Schroders Investment Trust stock.


Invest through a SIPP

A pension is one of the most tax efficient ways of saving for retirement. It is easy to make regular or one-off investments into investment trust shares within a Self Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) with a UK online stockbroker.


Invest through an ISA

An Individual Savings Account (ISA) is a tax efficient wrapper to shelter your savings and investments from tax. It is easy to make regular or one-off investments into Schroders investment trust shares in an ISA with a UK online stockbroker.

What are the risks?

Past performance is not a guide to future performance and may not be repeated.  The value of investments, and the income from them, can go down as well as up and investors might not get back the amount originally invested.

Some trusts invest solely in the companies of, or in property located in, one country or region. This can carry more risk than investments spread over a number of countries or regions.

Investors in the emerging markets and the Far East should be aware that this involves a high degree of risk and should be seen as long term in nature.

Exchange rates may cause the value of investments denominated in currencies other than sterling, and the income from them, to rise or fall.

The trusts may borrow money to invest in further investments, this is known as gearing. Gearing will increase returns if the value of the investments purchased increase in value by more than the cost of borrowing, or reduce returns if they fail to do so.
