Unit Trusts

A unit trust can best be described as a collective share investment scheme, where investments are made in a variety of different companies. These investments are collected together into a share portfolio, which individual investors can then buy units in.

The way in which you, as an individual, can choose to buy these units may vary. People often invest a lump sum but it's becoming increasingly common to pay installments on a monthly basis.
