Investment trust

Set up as a public (plc) company and has a board of directors. Similarly to investment funds, when buying into an investment trust your money is pooled. The funds are then used by the manager to buy various investments, including bonds, equities and other assets. They are also referred to as closed-ended funds as they issue a set number of shares which are then traded by investors.
