How it works
How do we invest in the stock market?
The great appeal of index tracking is that it’s one of the surest ways to benefit from the stock market, making the most of its historic long-term growth. It works on the principle that when share prices move, you automatically ‘keep track’.
With our tracker fund your investment gets spread across the shares of every one of the 600+ companies listed on the FTSE All-Share Index, ensuring that whenever the index is growing your investment keeps track with it every step of the way.
Here’s how the UK stock market has grown over the last 20 years:
Source: Morningstar Direct. All-Share Index, total return basis, 370.5% growth from 31.03.93 to 31.03.13.
Remember, the charges of a unit trust or similar investment would reduce the return shown, and the value of your investment can rise and fall on a daily basis. Past performance is not a guide to the future.
