Annabel Brodie-Smith, communications director at the 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.”
