A good way to make your money grow is to get into an investment trust. Resembling a co-op, an investment trust is an organization in which investors contribute to a common fund. They entrust their money to the management of the trust.
As a result, its members expect to receive greater returns on their contributions than they could achieve individually. The investments of the trust are often more carefully chosen, better researched and more effective than those that the average individual investor may choose. This trust offers the best possible application of capital for the mutual benefit of its members.
Another benefit is a good amount of protection for both principal and income, because the trust supervises the portfolio continuously. And the holdings of an investment trust are usually well diversified because it applies the insurance principle of distributing risk over a large field instead of concentrating it in a few securities.
An investment trust purchases securities for investment only. It remains independent and will avoid having any responsibility to direct or control the companies whose securities are in its portfolio. In this way it fosters a dispassionate trust.
When talking about trusts and financial institutions it is easy to get confused, but you can take this away: investment trust in America is not at all the same as the American trust company.
Not to be overlooked as you make your investment plans is the investment trust specializes in real estate. These are called REITs, or Real Estate Investment Trusts, under whose umbrella are the ownership, management and redevelopment of high quality retail assets. Think high-end shopping centers.
REITs receive special tax considerations and typically offer investors high yields, as well as a highly liquid method of investing in real estate.
