Buying your investment trust

Buying shares in an investment trust is easy. You can do so via a stockbroker or an online platform. You can also invest in investment trusts through your ISA with another provider or self-invested personal pension (SIPP).

Managing your investment trust

It is important to keep up to date with how your investment trust is performing and the wider issues which might influence how it is invested. All the information you need will be on the investment trust section of the BlackRock website. You will also receive regular updates from the portfolio managers and the board of directors who oversee your investment trust.
