What is a unit trust?
A unit trust is a type of investment that combines your money with the money of other investors who have similar investment objectives. You can invest anything from 3 to 7 years, depending on your needs. It gives you easy and affordable access to financial markets to grow or protect your money.
Our professional fund managers use the pool of money to buy underlying investments to construct a unit trust that is split into equal chunks called "units" or “funds”. You will own units according to the amount of money you invest and the price of the units on the day you buy them.
How to choose a unit trust?
We offer a range of unit trusts to suit all your personal investment needs and goals. You can typically choose a lower risk unit trust with more stability for shorter-term needs, or a unit trust with a potential higher return for long-term needs.
A financial adviser can help you choose the most suitable unit trusts or other investment options.
What you need to know about unit trusts
Access and flexibility
You can access your money whenever you need it. To buy and sell is easy, and you can invest more or withdraw your money within a couple of days.
A unit trust typically has an investment management and a financial adviser fee if you use a financial adviser to invest in unit trusts. Each fund fact sheet sets out the fees for that unit trust.
You’ll be liable for any tax in your personal capacity. We will send you a tax certificate every tax year for each of your unit trusts.
Financial markets generally go through cycles over time, which means that the value of your unit trust investment can go up or down.
