AIC expands investment trust research for investors

The Association of Investment Companies (AIC) has expanded its research offering for investment trust investors. Research from various providers is now available on the AIC’s website

This research is from Edison Group, Hardman & Co, Kepler, QuotedData and others and can be accessed on This research is often paid for by investment companies themselves, and any opinions and ratings in this research are not endorsed by the AIC.

Two kinds of research are available on the AIC’s site. Investment company research focuses on an individual company’s performance and prospects, providing in-depth commentary and analysis. Thematic research looks more broadly at investment sectors, themes, strategies and trends that can be accessed via several investment trusts.

Annabel Brodie-Smith, Communications Director at the Association of Investment Companies (AIC), said: “We hope these research reports will help investors discover more, whether they are researching new investment trusts or reviewing trusts in their portfolio. We’ve brought this research together so investors can easily find reports that relate to a particular investment trust or a theme that interests them. 

“This new expanded research on the AIC’s website complements the wide range of free resources available for investors. Whether it’s detailed company information, reports and accounts, factsheets, portfolios, performance data or access to company events and presentations, provides a one-stop shop for investors looking to learn more about investment trusts.”

The Association of Investment Companies (AIC) has collated comments from Edison Group, Kepler, Hardman & Co and QuotedData about how their research can help investment trust users, including tips on how to select a trust and avoid common investment pitfalls.
