Frequently Asked Questions

What are the types of unit trusts available?

Unit trusts can be divided into several categories depending on their investment objectives and focus. In general, they are divided into three main categories: shares, bonds and balanced funds that combine shares and bonds. Some funds are invested in a single country (e.g. Singapore, Thailand), some in specific regions (e.g. Asia, Europe) and some globally. There are also funds that focus on specific sectors or industries such as technology and healthcare.
