The Investor Education Centre (IEC) provides the following definition:
These companies are investment vehicles whose primary objectives are making investments in listed or unlisted securities, including warrants, money market instruments, commodities, options and futures contracts. Investment companies may also invest in other collective investment schemes. They do not have any other active business. Therefore, the best that they can offer to shareholders is the appreciation in the value of their individual investments.
Investment activities of these companies are basically carried out by investment managers engaged by the management of these companies. In this regard, the quality, judgment and conduct of investment managers are important to the performance of these companies.
