Affordable and transparent unit trusts
Unit trusts are a key part of any portfolio, writes Pedro van Gaalen
Unit trusts are considered a simple, convenient and affordable collective investment through which retail investors can gain exposure to a range of local and foreign assets, including equities, bonds, listed property, gold or money markets.
"Local unit trust investors are spoilt for choice in terms of the investment options available, which are also more affordable than many other types of investments," says Galileo Capital’s Warren Ingram. "Unit trusts also offer investors fraud protection as these funds are very transparent and highly regulated."
