Stocks and UITs
If you are interested in long-term growth potential, a portion of your portfolio may be best suited for equities. Unit Investment Trusts are an unmanaged portfolio of professionally selected securities that are held for a specified period of time. Equity UITs tend to be a "buy-and-hold" investments. Securities in the UIT portfolio are typically held for a pre-determined time to generate dividends and capital gains for investors. At the UIT maturity, the investor can take the cash and invest elsewhere or roll over the balance into a new unit investment trust.
Bonds and UITs
Municipal bonds are tax-exempt debt obligations issued by states, cities, towns, municipalities, municipal authorities and governmental entities. The interest earned on municipal bonds is generally free of federal income taxes and also may be free of state or local income taxes if purchased by residents of the issuing state. In contrast to Equity Unit Investment Trusts, Bond Unit Investment Trusts typically makes a one-time "public offering" of only a specific, fixed number of units.
