Investment Trust Insider: issue 26 out now!

With investors running scared from stock markets we look at some of the best opportunities among investment trusts this ISA season.

Investment Trust Insider: issue 26 out now!

Welcome to this month's free edition of Investment Trust Insider.

The bull has left the china shop and everywhere else it seems. It has been shocking to see the collapse of investor sentiment as markets have tumbled, particularly as not so long ago there appeared to be cautious optimism over the boost to global consumer spending that the slump in oil prices could bring.

Let's hope the stock market rally we've seen since last Friday continues.

As always we have three must-read articles for you.

China Crisis: what happened?

Robert St George speaks to investment trust managers about the events behind China's stock market woes that sent tremors around the world.

ISA Power: five Top Trusts

Worried about where to invest this year's ISA (individual savings account) allowance? We hear the views of a leading global investment trust manager on world stock markets.

Plus we pick out five Top Trusts for Global Growth: each has good performance, reasonable charges but different approaches to the challenge of global investing.

The Specials: eight great, overlooked trusts

‘Special situation’ investment trusts have gone through a period of poor performance and have either responded with corporate change, or are under pressure to do so, in order to improve investor returns.

This article looks at what happened to 10 special situations we identified in 2014 and discovers eight more for 2016.

Typo in the guide 26 - it says FRCL was set up in 1968, it was if course 1868
