I’m looking for a new angle on...

A one-stop shop for global equity investment, offering growth in capital and income.


With so many options, deciding how to invest in global stock markets for an ISA, SIPP or savings can be confusing. At Witan Investment Trust our purpose is to achieve significant growth in our investors’ wealth, while making investing simple for our shareholders.*


Collective Wisdom

Witan Investment Trust invests in established as well as promising emerging companies around the world. We search for the best fund managers internationally, so the portfolio is not reliant on the stock-picking skills of one individual.

The multi-manager team-based approach ensures that the portfolio embraces many companies, sectors and geographies.

That degree of diversity — coupled with the variety of investments — makes Witan a straightforward, one-stop gateway to the international equity markets.


All the variety the world has to offer

The sheer variety of investment opportunities means that they aren’t always obvious or easy to enter.

Our global investment managers identify those opportunities and provide access to them. Although each manager has its own style and specialisations, it’s their complementary skills and collective wisdom which provides long term capital and income growth for our shareholders.*


A share in Witan gives you variety, diversity, opportunity

Some managers focus on large, ‘household name’ companies; while others might seek to profit from pioneering businesses involved in clean energy, private equity or life sciences. But sectors and markets change over time. When that happens, we can appoint or replace managers accordingly. For short term opportunities, we may use gearing and derivatives to capitalise on those events and mitigate the risks.


A growing dividend paid quarterly

Witan has a 47-year history of consecutive dividend rises and as an investment trust is able to hold revenues in reserve to help smooth out dividend payments.
