Email of the day - on investment trusts investing in private equity

I don't know if it would help your subscriber who asked about private equity, but I wondered if he was aware that some investment trusts in the UK offer some exposure. For example, Scottish Mortgage has about 20% of its assets in unlisted companies. 

There are probably others. Consult the Investment Trust handbook.

(I should say I own shares in Scottish Mortgage)

Eoin Treacy's view

Thank you for this suggestion which I’m sure will be appreciated by other subscribers. I have also reached out to Jonathan Davis, one of the authors of the Investment Trust Handbook, and I will revert with whatever response he provides.
