The crisis we are witnessing in the Ukraine is fast-moving with enormous uncertainties and grave humanitarian impacts. We continue to monitor its implications closely.

Across the 10 Investment Trusts we manage, we can confirm there is minimal direct exposure to Russia. The only exposure is via one of our Global Equity Trusts, F&C Investment Trust, and has been written down to zero value. The manager will seek to divest when market conditions permit.

All Trust managers continue to monitor the situation, including their indirect exposure to Russia and Ukraine, where we expect to see supply chain disruption.

Our investment plans

Lifetime ISA

For those aged 18-39, a Lifetime ISA could help towards purchasing your first home up to £450,000 or retirement in later life. Benefit from tax-efficient savings as well as a government bonus.

Let’s talk about risk

All of our investment plans involve a level of risk and the value of your investments can go down as well as up. The level of risk will depend upon the underlying investments that you choose to hold in the plans. You need to be comfortable that you may not get back the original amount invested.

Tax allowances and the benefits of tax-efficient accounts are subject to change and tax treatment depends upon your individual circumstances.
