  • Funds

    A generic term used to describe an investment vehicle where a professional investment manager takes the money paid in by multiple individuals and invests it in a wide range of underlying assets – shares, bonds etc - in accordance with the stated objectives of the Fund. Each investor owns a number of units which represents their holding in that fund and their value is determined by the Net Asset (NAV) of that fund. In the UK these normally mean Unit Trusts and OEICs.
