    new HL fund £1 15th Apr 19 at 2:52 PM
    HL have launched a new fund with a fixed price of £1 per unit until launch on 2nd May. theSource=AI025&Override=1

    I know HL funds are generally considered poor value and rely on marketing to more unsophisticated investors. My question is what the £1 price relates to.

    If this is the unit price, I donít see what benefit it is by being £1. If they sell 1000 units and so raise £1000 and buy £1000 of shares, each unit remains at £1 underlying value.

    But if they double the unit price to £2, they sell 500 units and raise £1000 to buy the same shares, each unit is worth twice as much so you havenít overpaid for the units.

    What am I missing? Is the £1 price a marketing tactic? As most people think in terms of money to invest as opposed to determining to buy a specific number of units and then finding out how much money that is.
