One of the key advantages of an investment trust is the ability to manage illiquid assets. This session looks at the arguments for non-conventional investment trusts, such as diversification, return potential and accessing faster growth or higher income. It will also consider the discount problem – a particular issue with illiquid investment trusts – and how investors can manage it. The speakers will uncover why the investment trust structure works well for these types of asset classes.
