UNDERSTANDING UNIT TRUST

Unit Trust
Q
What is a Unit Trust?
A A Unit Trust is an investment scheme, which pools money from many investors who share the same financial objectives. The Trustee on behalf of the investors holds the assets of the Trust.

By pooling your funds you gain access to investment opportunities, which are normally unavailable to the individual investor.

Investors' rights and interest are well protected by an independent Trustee (who is appointed to ensure that the manager is in compliance with the terms and conditions of the Trust Deed), an independent Auditor and the Securities Commission.
