Advantages of OEICs

  • Share price is not affected by supply and demand.
  • Borrowing is not permitted, reducing the potential risks.
  • Suitable for investors who want a spread of investments, managed by professionals.
  • Investor needs no expert knowledge.
  • They are extremely flexible and you can change from a single lump sum to regular monthly investments. You can increase or decrease the amount according to one's individual needs.
  • OEIC's quote a single price, and a levy which shows the costs of buying/selling, therefore they are more liquid than Unit trusts and Investment Trusts.
  • Can be placed in an ISA wrapper.
