These figures come from sales figures on the Alliance Trust Savings platform, a platform savings business owned by the Alliance Trust investment trust. The platform is one of the easiest ways to invest in investment trusts as well as being one of the most popular so the figures give a good indication of the popularity of individual trusts.

It should be noted that investors on Alliance Trust i.nvest platform can purchase Alliance Trust share free of dealing charges. This may support Alliance Trust’s high ranking on the list.

Instead you should use this site and the information within it for research purposes only. The suitability of the investments discussed here will depend upon your personal circumstance. If you are unsure about its suitability for you personaly then seek the counsel of an experienced financial adviser. Considered financial advice is often greatly undervalued and is of great use in navigating the complex universe that is both investments and holistic financial planning. You should also remember that when reviewing investments past performance has been shown to be an often poor indicator of future performance, and particularly so in the short term. Before making an investment it is important to consider the risk to your capital should the investment go down in value. Substantial loses can be experienced, again this is especially so over the short term. It is also important to consider that the nature of the investments featured on are long term in nature and should NEVER be considered over a short term horizon. Predicting the direction of investment markets on a short term basis has been shown to be incredibly difficult, and no one here at professes to have any such experience or qualification.
