The F&C Investment Trust was launched in 1868, bringing the benefits of investing to a wider audience. A lot has happened since then. 150 years later, the world’s oldest collective investment fund is still going strong. If you’re looking to generate your capital and income over the longer term, this could be the investment for you.
We invest mostly in equities focusing on strong companies, including household names like Unilever and GlaxoSmithKline as well as powerful newcomers like Netflix and Tesla Motors. We also tap into exciting growth prospects of emerging markets, such as China and Latin America.
We don’t restrict our investors to publicly listed equities. Although riskier, well managed private equity investments can be more rewarding. But not everyone has early access to these long-term less liquid, and often innovative, investment opportunities. We add value for our shareholders by holding a diversified proportion through a range of funds. Our investments have included Facebook, Twitter, Lovefilm and many more.
