Question: UK Equities is a rather broad subject matter….What current equity funds do the panel suggest as an attractive proposition for a new investor?
Kevin Murphy - Schroders
An equity fund is simply a fund which invests in shares. Most equity funds fall under the umbrella term mutual funds. A mutual fund is a professionally managed investment vehicle, consisting of a number of diversified investments which are owned jointly by a group of investors. In the UK, most mutual funds have a unit trust or open ended investment company (OEIC) structure.
Investment advice is best given on the basis of an in-depth understanding of an investor's investment objectives, time horizon and attitude towards risk. As investment managers we are unable to provide advice on individual fund choice. However, when researching the range of UK equity funds on offer we think it's worth taking a close look at Schroders' UK equity funds, which offer suitable options for a wide variety of client needs.
