African Life Financial Services’ Guide to Investing in Zambia’s Unit Trusts with Mutual Funds.

Investing in Zambia’s burgeoning financial markets can be a rewarding endeavour, particularly with the guidance of experienced fund managers like Aflife. Among the various investment options available, unit trusts offer a diversified approach, allowing investors to pool their resources and access a range of asset classes. In this guide, we’ll delve into what unit trusts are, how Aflife operates within this framework, the steps to investing with them, and the exciting Invest In Your Tomorrow Today, that offers additional benefits for new investors.

Understanding Unit Trusts: A Path to Diversification.

A unit trust, also known as a collective investment scheme, is a vehicle that enables individuals to invest collectively in a diverse portfolio of assets. Here’s a breakdown of how unit trusts work:

  1. Pooling of Funds: Investors contribute money into a common fund, which is then managed by professional fund managers like Aflife. 
  1. Division into Units: The total value of the fund is divided into units of equal value. Each investor owns units proportionate to their investment. 
  1. Diversification: Unit trusts invest in various asset classes such as shares, property, money market securities, and bonds, spreading the risk across different sectors.
  1. Reduced Risk: By spreading investments across different assets, unit trusts help mitigate the risk associated with individual investments.
  1. Professional Management: Experienced fund managers make investment decisions on behalf of investors, aiming to maximize returns while managing risk. Unit trusts are typically medium to long-term investments, offering the potential for capital growth and income generation.
