A comprehensive and practical guide to investment trusts. These investment vehicles have been underused by investors in the past, but that is set to change now that the Retail Distribution Review has banned commissions and put investment trusts on a level playing field. The book explains what investment trusts are and focuses on how to construct and run a trust portfolio.  It offers investors, both experienced and novice, a concise and jargon free guide to these lucrative investment vehicles.

Review:

Investment trusts are often thought of as being "complicated" or "only for City types". John Baron shows clearly that they are neither, and can be used effectively by anyone looking to make the most of their money.

Jonathan Eley, editor, FT Money

From the Back Cover:

John Baron’s excellent book is more than just an extremely comprehensive guide to the workings and benefits of investment trusts – detailing his experiences managing successful investment portfolios, it’s also a robust framework for anyone looking to take more control of their financial future.John Hughman, Editor, Investors Chronicle
The FT Guide to Investment Trusts is packed with sound investment advice and information - a boon for anyone concerned about investing for the future - and all written with admirable clarity.Ruth Lea, Non Executive Director and Economic Adviser, Arbuthnot Banking Group

 

Making your capital work hard has never been more important than it is today. Investment trusts, often over looked as an investing vehicle, are a key tool in getting better returns on your money.

 

The Financial Times Guide to Investment Trusts is your concise and jargon free introduction to one of the City’s best kept secrets. It explains how investment trusts differ from unit trusts and OEICs and explores the pros and cons of investment trusts including their superior performance. It also helps you identify your investment objectives, discusses the basic principles of successful investing, and how to run a trust portfolio.

 

Whether you are a novice DIY investor or have many years experience and wish to question the experts; the FT Guide to Investment Trusts: 

  • Provides a detailed overview of what investment trusts are and how they differ from other funds
  • Examines the factors which help to explain the better performance of trusts – including cheaper fees, discounts and gearing
  • Analyses the stepping stones to successful investing
  • Shows you how to construct and monitor a trust portfolio
  • Highlights the workings of two live and benchmarked portfolios which John has been sharing with Investor Chronicle readers over the years.
