Investment Company with Variable CapitalInvestment Company with Variable Capital
An open-ended collective investment vehicle, similar to a unit trust. As with unit trusts, the money invested by savers is pooled, and then invested in the markets by professional fund managers appointed by the ICVC. The advantage to savers is that by putting their savings together with savings of other individuals, they get the benefits of diversification, and also of professional fund management. The difference between an ICVC and a unit trust is that an ICVC is a company rather than a trust. If you put savings into it, you have shares, not units. Also, an ICVC has just one price, whether you are buying or selling shares in it, with charges shown separately.
