trustee investments

investments made by a trustee on behalf of an individual or group through a TRUST. In the UK such investments are governed by the Trustee Investment Act of 1961, which lays down rules obliging trustees to maintain part of their portfolio in the form of Government BONDS, and restricting shareholdings to SHARES in larger quoted companies.
