A unit investment trust, or UIT, is an entity that issues securities representing undivided interests in a fixed portfolio of securities. They are usually assembled by a sponsor into a portfolio, placed into a trust, and sold in a public offering. UITs are redeemable securities issued for a specified term, and investors are entitled to receive a proportionate share of the UIT’s net assets on redemption or at termination. A unit investment trust is typically offered in a one-time public offering of a set number of units, though UIT sponsors often create secondary markets in which individual UIT owners can sell those units back to their sponsors, thus extending the opportunity for new investors to buy UITs. Unit investment trusts involve expenses such as sales charges; creation and development fees; and operating expenses, typically charged against the UIT’s portfolio of assets. Sponsors generally offer discounts, including breakpoints, which let investors reduce fees by increasing the size of their investments, as well as discounts on rollovers and exchanges. Brokers and investment advisers who engage in misconduct related to unit investment trusts may be subject to disciplinary action by FINRA or the Securities and Exchange Commission.
