InvestmenTrustsHandbook19-front-latest

The Investment Trusts Handbook 2020 is the latest edition of the popular annual handbook for investors of all kinds interested in investment trusts – often referred to as the City’s best-kept secret.

With fascinating articles by more than a dozen different authors, including analysts, fund managers and investment writers, and edited by independent financial author and expert Jonathan Davis, the handbook is an indispensable companion for anyone looking to invest in the investment trusts arena. Contributors include John Baron, Robin Angus, Max King, Sandy Cross and many more.

The Investment Trusts Handbook 2020 is an editorially independent educational publication, available through bookshops and online. The publication is supported by Aberdeen Standard, Fidelity International, Jupiter Asset Management and Polar Capital. We share an interest in spreading awareness of investment trusts as an option for self-directed investors and financial advisers.

“This is truly the definitive guide on the market right now.”

Master Investor

“This book is essential reading if you are serious about long term investing and want to use investment trusts to gain exposure to different parts of the market.”

Archive

Past editions of the Handbook contain many articles about the hows and whys of investing in investment trusts. A selection of them are published here. Please note however that they have not been updated, so some of the specific references and facts may be out of date. The general themes and principles remain as relevant today as when they were first published however.
