Explaining what trusts are - the second episode

Jonathan Davis and Simon Elliott of Winterflood Securities review the week

In the second part of a special two-part podcast, Jonathan Davis, editor of the Investment Trusts Handbook, and Simon Elliott, head of investment trust research at Winterflood Securities, step back from tracking the week’s news to provide an in-depth primer on what investment trusts are and how they operate. The second part of this special holiday edition, designed as an introductory guide for first time investors in investment trusts and as a refresher for more experienced shareholders, covers alternative assets and the importance of sectors. The normal weekly podcast will resume in early September.
