Why Investment Trusts?
The Brunner Investment Trust PLC (Brunner) is an independent company listed on the London Stock Exchange whose investment trust structure provides access to a diversified global portfolio.
Investment trusts own shares in a variety of different companies, so buying shares in Brunner will effectively give you a diversified portfolio of global companies. This spreads your risk, as you are not reliant on the success of just one or two companies. And buying shares in an investment trust can be less costly than purchasing the underlying stocks individually.
Because Brunner is an investment trust and an independent company listed on the London Stock Exchange, the investment manager is accountable to the Trust’s board of directors. The board is completely autonomous and ensures that the interests of shareholders are looked after. The Brunner board of directors is particularly experienced; as well as providing investors with the reassurance of a diligent environment of checks and balances, they also provide the Trust with invaluable knowledge and economic insight.
