A Unit Trust (also known as a collective investment scheme) is a pool of money managed collectively by a fund manager. You invest in a Unit Trust by buying units in a trust. Your money will be pooled with that of other investors and invested in a portfolio of assets to achieve the investment objective of the Unit Trust. When a Unit Trust is first launched for sale, the price of each unit is usually fixed. If you invest in an existing Unit Trust, the price of each unit will be based on the market value of the underlying assets that the Unit Trust has invested in. The number of units you will receive depends on the amount of your investment less the sales charge you have to pay.

As Unit Trusts are generally considered medium to long-term investments, you should have the financial resources to stay invested in them for a reasonable period of time so as to gain the full benefits. If you need to convert your investments to cash in the short-term to meet specific needs, a Unit Trust may not be suitable for you.

You will need a Citibank checking / savings account and a Unit Trust account. You will also need to complete an Investment Risk Profile to determine if Unit Trusts is a suitable investment product for you.

You will be able to view your Unit Trust portfolio, Buy / Sell / Switch / Set up a Regular Savings Plan (RSP). You will also be able to open mutual fund accounts.
