What is a Collective Investment Scheme?
A collective investment scheme is an investment instrument in which the investments of many individuals are pooled together in a fund, and is managed by a professional fund manager. Investors’ ownership in the fund is determined by the number of units they hold. These investors are called unit holders. Collective Investment Schemes in Jamaica are governed by the provisions of the Securities Acts and are regulated by the Financial Services Commission (FSC), a government body established to regulate the operations of certain financial institutions.
