Advanced English Dialogue for Business – Participating trust

Listen to a Business English Dialogue about Participating trust

William: Hey Ava, have you ever heard of a participating trust?

Ava: No, I haven’t. What is it?

William: A participating trust is a type of investment trust where beneficiaries are entitled to receive a share of the trust’s income and capital gains.

Ava: Interesting. So, it’s like a collective investment scheme where investors pool their money to invest in various assets?

William: Exactly. The trust’s income and capital gains are distributed among the beneficiaries based on their proportional investment in the trust.

Ava: That sounds like a convenient way for investors to diversify their portfolios while also receiving regular income.

William: Indeed. Participating trusts can offer investors a way to access a broad range of assets and potentially generate consistent returns over time.

Ava: It seems like a good option for those looking for passive income and capital appreciation without having to actively manage their investments.

William: Absolutely. Participating trusts can be a valuable tool for investors seeking a balanced approach to growing their wealth over the long term.

Ava: Thanks for explaining, William. I’ll definitely look into participating trusts as a potential investment option.

William: You’re welcome, Ava. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.
