How To Start Investing -A 21st Century Approach
If you missed out on this wondrous thing it’s a book of home and leisure products from a popular UK retailer and is currently in the homes of around two thirds of the UK households. I don’t have one in my house at the moment but at the age of perhaps 9 or 10 it was revered as a bible. It would not be unusual to find me lying on my bed eagerly flicking through the catalogue pages, reading every last description and staring at the pictures: Super-soaker water guns, digital watches. Remote control cars.  You could even buy flying lessons…but alas the minimum age of 16 seemed eons away at that time.  I could spend ... market research, surveys and trends

Fast Answers: Investing, Other Investments, Unit Investment Trusts ...
A unit investment trust, or UIT, is a variation of a closed-end mutual fund that usually invests in a fixed portfolio of bonds that are held until they mature. Since UITs don’t frequently trade the bonds they hold, their annual fees may be lower than fees charged by a traditional bond mutual fund. Cash flow from a UIT is also fairly predictable, because most of the bonds will be held until they mature. And investing in a UIT can provide you with a portfolio of bonds that have different maturity dates and an average holding period. This can help you plan for future cash needs, such as college tuition payments for a son or ...
