Is Alliance Trust suitable for you?

Before investing, it is important to understand your personal attitude to investment risk – as well as the risks associated with any investments you are considering. Taking on some risk is often the price of achieving returns. If you are looking for investment growth, you cannot eliminate risk.

If you need help in understanding your personal level of investment risk – or of the Investment Trust’s suitability for your individual needs – please speak to an independent financial adviser.

We are an equity-based Investment Trust, and as such should be considered a long-term investment, with (like all equities) a recommended minimum investment timeframe of five years.

Before investing, please also read through the Alliance Trust Investor Disclosure Document, in particular the ‘Investment Risk’ section and our Legal and Regulatory Information.
