What is a Unit Trust?
Unit Trust is a collective investment scheme where resources from individual investors are pooled together and managed by professional fund managers. The fund will be invested in worldwide markets through investment instruments such as equities, bonds, currencies, and derivatives.
Benefits of Unit Trusts
Worldwide Investment Opportunities


Due to high transaction costs and insufficient market information, it used to be very difficult and expensive for investors to capitalize on the investment opportunities in overseas markets. Unit Trusts provide efficient and cost-effective means for you to gain access to these markets.
Risk Diversification


According to the nature and goals of different investment schemes, your investment may be spread across various types of instruments, industries and countries, with different levels of risks and achieve the objectives of balancing investment.
Professional Management


Experienced and professional fund managers invest your capital in different countries, sectors or instruments according to the investment objectives of the investment scheme. With access to first hand macro and micro information, they can make the best decision to maximize your returns.
Economies of Scale


By pooling resources of many investors to become a portfolio, Unit Trusts enable you to share the costs with other investors in the schemes.
