Why Do Modern Sri Lankan Retail Investors Now Prefer Unit Trusts Over FDs?

A Quick Unit Trust Example

Now, let’s say that there’s a unit trust fund size totaling LKR 200 Million and a unit of the fund equals LKR 200 (unit price). As an investor in unit trusts, you buy units. So if you put in LKR 20,000, you’ll end up owning 100 units (LKR 20,000/LKR 200 unit price).

When you withdraw your unit trust funds or money, you are selling units. If at the date of selling, the unit price equals LKR 300, then your interest or gain will be LKR 10,000.

That is, the difference in the unit price between the date of buying and selling is equal to the gain you make.

Buying: LKR 20,000 (@ 200 per unit)
Selling: LKR 30,000 (@ 300 per unit)

Gain : LKR 10,000


Frequently Asked Questions

A unit trust is a pooled fund (contributions made by several investors) with common investment objectives. These pooled funds are then invested in a diversified portfolio of financial instruments such as bank and finance company deposits, corporate debt, shares, government securities etc. in order to earn a return.

The investors are allocated units in exchange for the funds they’ve invested and the return made by the pooled fund are allocated to these unit holders according to the number of units they own.

This decision solely depends on your risk appetite and at which stage you are in your personal financial cycle. The stock market is an investment opportunity for investors with high-risk appetite. Whereas fixed income unit trusts are in the low to medium risk spectrum offering above average returns for similar instruments across the financial market platform. It’s better option to earn superior returns with wealth preservation.

The rule of thumb in investing always calls for investors to diversify their investments in different asset classes.
