Haig Bathgate: the obscure world of investment trust IPOs

by Haig Bathgate on Mar 28, 2014 at 10:39

So my criticism is measured.

Investment trusts broadly have a great deal to offer customers. Show me a new investment trust with good prospects, a good manager and a clear, value-for-money fee structure, and there is a good chance I will buy into it.

He is spot on in all his arguments. The issue expenses should be paid for by the investment manager.. that said lots of issues are getting away and investors (mainly private client stockbrokers / discretionary managers) seem happy to pay the fees... history tells us that no fund stays at a premium.. maybe the infrastructure funds will prove its "different this time".
