Unit Trusts are a useful investment as they can accommodate the tax advantages extended by ISAs, providing the opportunity to benefit from a stock market investment without further liability to Income or Capital Gains Tax.
They are often seen as a crucial component of a stocks and shares ISA and offer a range of other benefits to investors. Unit trusts can provide a range of solutions for medium to long term capital growth and income.
