This brings the total number of investment trusts available on the platform to 91, following the addition of 12 earlier this year to the original 54 that were made available for the first time last year.

The firm now also offers 80 exchange traded products.

According to Danny Wynn, Head of Fund Partners at Fidelity International, the addition of the 25 trusts demonstrates the firm’s commitment to expanding its proposition to meet the needs of clients, having seen a steady uptick in demand for the vehicles since their inclusion last year.

Fundsnetwork’s views are echoed by broader patterns within the investment trust arena which saw assets under management hit a new record of £141bn at the end of June.

According to the latest data from the Association of Investment Companies, AUM has now almost doubled in the past decade, with £5bn added in the past month alone.
