What is a Unit Trust/Mutual Fund?

A Unit Trust/Mutual Fund is a collective investment pool made by many investors with a common investment objective. This pool of money is used to purchase a portfolio of financial securities. In exchange for the money invested, the fund issues units to each investor, who are then known as unit holders.

A Unit Trust/Mutual Fund is set up by a trust deed and is an independent legal entity. The trust is administered by its trustee and managed by a professional fund management company under the supervision of SEC.

Who should invest in unit trusts?

Unit Trusts/Mutual Funds are ideally suited to people who do not have the time or expertise needed to select individual investment products themselves, or who have limited financial capability but want the benefits of professional asset management and diversification.
