A fund is an investment vehicle that allows a large number of people to pool their money together in order to invest in a range of different securities such as stocks and bonds. In the UK, individuals can invest in different kinds of funds. Selling Investment Trusts Open-end funds can theoretically offer a limitless number of shares for investors to buy. These funds also stand ready to purchase back those shares when investors want to cash out.
Investment trust shares trade on stock exchanges just like the shares of any other public company. Like stocks, investment trusts trade at different market prices throughout the day. This is unlike open-end funds, which are priced once each day. Investors also generally pay brokerage commissions to buy and sell investment trust shares, just as they would for the shares of any publicly traded company. Unless you buy in on the investment trust IPO, any shares you purchase in an investment trust will usually be bought over an exchange, at the prevailing market price. Thus, rather than purchasing shares from or selling them back to the fund company, you are trading with other investors at a market price.
