Unlike an OEIC, an investment trust has a fixed number of shares rather than a variable number so the price of the shares is affected by supply and demand and is not derived directly from the value of the underlying investments. The price of an OEIC is calculated directly from the value of the underlying investments held by the OEIC. An investment trust is listed on the London Stock Exchange as a quoted company. An OEIC is not listed on any exchange.
