When investing in unit trusts, investors purchase units in an Investment Fund.
A Unit Trust means the fund manager will set up a trust that is separate from their company and will appoint an independent financial institution, such as a bank to act as trustee. The trustee’s role is to look after the assets that the fund is invested in and to monitor the fund manager.
To open a Unit Trust online you'll be asked to choose the fund that suits you, your goals and your attitude to risk, from the online investment fund range. You will then need to choose the Unit Trust option.

Stocks and shares ISAs are a tax efficient way to invest.
A stocks and shares ISA allows you to invest into a range of investments, such as government and corporate bonds, property and stocks and shares as part of your ISA allowance. Because they are held in an ISA, any gains you make are tax efficient, helping you to save some tax depending on what investments you have and what levels of tax you pay. There's more on this in our guide to stocks and shares ISAs.
For the 2019/2020 tax year, the total ISA allowance is £20,000. You can choose to split this allowance between cash and stocks and shares ISAs.
To open a stocks and shares ISA online you'll be asked to choose the fund that suits you, your goals and your attitude to risk, from the online investment fund range. You will then need to choose the stocks and shares ISA option.
