Investment trusts

Capturing stock market opportunities around the world

Remember, the value of investments and the income from them can go down as well as up, so you may get back less than you invest.

Making sense of transaction charges and dealing costs

Because Investment trusts are listed on a stock exchange, choosing to invest in one will incur additional charges:

  • All investment trust trades incur a broker trading charge of 0.10% per individual deal. This is paid on buys and sells. It's important to note that if you switch from one investment trust to another, you will pay the 0.10% dealing fee twice – once for selling your original holding and another for buying the new one.
  • Most investment trusts have two share prices. There is the one you buy at (the offer price) and the one you sell at (the bid price). The result is effectively a transaction charge for investing in the fund.
  • You pay stamp duty when buying an investment trust. When buying an investment trust you pay 0.5% in stamp duty. Stamp duty is not charged when you sell.

Bring your investments together

Having investments spread across multiple companies can be both time-consuming and costly. Bringing them together means less stress and less paperwork.

Our straightforward transfer process makes it easy to bring your investments together - just tell us where they’re currently held and we’ll take care of the rest.

It’s free to transfer and we’ll even cover any exit fees you may incur, up to a total of £500 per person. T&Cs apply.

Please remember that the value of investments can fall as well as rise, so you may get back less than you invest. It’s important to understand that pension transfers are a complex area and may not be suitable for everyone. Before going ahead with a pension transfer, we strongly recommend that you undertake a full comparison of the charges, features, and services offered.
