Quarterly factsheet

Getting started

Investment trusts offer a flexible and effective way to gain exposure to some of the world's most dynamic markets and regions, and can be used to meet a variety of investment outcomes.

What are the risks?

  • Long-term outcomes are more binary – extremely attractive rewards for success but some businesses will inevitably fail to fulfil their potential and this may expose investors to the risk of capital losses
  • As it can take years for young businesses to fulfil their potential, this investment requires patience
  • The price of shares in the trust is determined by market supply and demand, and this may be different to the net asset value of the trust. This means the price may be volatile in response to changes in demand
  • The trust may invest in overseas securities and be exposed to currencies other than pound sterling – as a result, exchange rate movements may cause the value of the trust, individual investments, and any income paid to decrease or increase
  • The trust may invest in unquoted securities, which may be less liquid and more difficult to value, because they are generally not publicly traded – the lack of an open market may also make it more difficult to establish fair value
  • Young businesses have a different risk profile to mature blue-chip companies – risks are much more stock-specific, which implies a lower correlation with equity markets and the wider economy
  • The Company 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.
