Many investors believe active fund managers prove their worth when markets fall. But, as October’s mini-crash shows, that’s not true. Here’s what you should know before picking an active or a passive fund.
Funds are a popular choice for investors looking to build their fortunes, but they come in two main varieties. Investment trusts are by far the better bet, says John Stepek.

Looking to invest with an active fund manager? Here’s yet another reason to look at investment trusts before you do anything else. John Stepek reports.
Alliance is finally doing what it should have been doing for the last 20 years – offering low-cost, high-conviction and well diversified investment for the masses.
Merryn Somerset Webb talks to fund manager Nick Greenwood about why you should buy investment trusts over open-ended funds, and his three favourite areas to invest in now.

Right now you can pick up some very good investment trusts so cheaply that they have a good chance of outperforming the market.
