Together with the Money Minder which this week looks at Unit Trusts
There are over 2,000,000 investors in Unit Trusts and sometimes it seems as if there are as many trusts to choose from. In the past they've taken the responsibility of investment off the investor's back. But how well have they looked after your money? And with so many trusts how do you know which type to choose? Are they still a good investment? The Money Minder examines the ever-increasing world of the Unit Trusts.
