The world's oldest collective investment scheme
The F&C Investment Trust was launched in 1868, bringing the benefits of investing to a wider audience. Take a look at the short video to see a snapshot of history and the changes since launch.
“We started out in 1868 investing in Emerging Market bonds including Brazil – so we have moved from literally investing in the Amazon – to purchasing Amazon.com some 140 years later. After a fifty fold gain on some of those early purchases, it’s now our largest holding.”
