Investing in funds
Considering investing in funds but not sure where to start? In this brief guide, we look at the basics of fund investment.
Bear in mind the value of all investments can go down as well as up, and you may get back less than you put in.
A unit trust is a type of investment fund that pools your money with other investors to buy a wide range of assets. That means you’re investing in a diversified portfolio, and spreading your risk as a result.
The value of the fund is split into units, and that’s what you’re buying with your investment. The value of your units can then go up or down depending on the performance of the assets in the fund - ultimately, you make money by selling your units for more than you originally bought them for.
