OEICs are UK authorised collective investment schemes.
They are investments where your money is pooled with other investors’ money and is put into different asset classes.
An OEIC is a modern version of a unit trust, and can be a single company or a company with a number of sub-funds known as an umbrella scheme.
If you don’t want to invest via an ISA – for example if you have already used this tax year’s ISA allowance – you can invest directly in any of our OEIC funds.
What are the benefits?
The advantages of investing in an OEIC rather than directly in the stockmarket are that:
Both OEICs and unit trusts are open-ended investments, so more shares or units can be issued or cancelled at any stage. However;
Please note that prices may fluctuate and you may not get back your original investment.
