A unit trust is a type of investment that provides easy and affordable access to financial markets. Your money is combined with the money of other investors and our investment managers use the pool of money to buy underlying investments, such as equities, bonds, cash and property, depending on the unit trust objective. The unit trust is split into equal portions called 'units' that are allocated to you according to the amount of money you invest and the price of the units on the day you buy them. Unit trusts are beneficial as you buy units in the unit trust of your choice, you decide when and how many units to buy, and you own the units until you decide to sell them. Investment risk as the probability of permanently losing money. Because investment returns are not guaranteed, there is a chance that you might end up with less than what you invested if you withdraw after a downturn. The level of investment risk associated with each unit trust depends on the underlying assets of that unit trust. For example, the risk of losing money is higher in an equity-only unit trust than in a unit trust that invests in a mix of assets. Generally, higher investment risk comes with higher potential long-term investment returns. However, you would typically need to remain invested for a longer period of time. This is because these investments move up and down over the short term, and if you need to access your money sooner than expected, you may lock in losses.
