There are now nearly 1,000 trusts, run by more than 100 lanagement groups. Some tsusts aim to provide income, some growth. Some specialise in a particular sector, eg Japan, or electronics. Unit trusts quote two prices: an offer (or sale) price and a bid (or buy back) price. Management fees - generally 5pc initially and 0.5pc to 1pc yearly - are absorbed within the "bid/offer spread".  More UT Choice MoneyFile IT Tables Headlines
