Definition: Accumulation Units


Quick Summary of Accumulation Units


Units in a unit trust where the income from the trust’s investments is reinvested in the trust rather than being paid out to its investors as dividends. This is either through enhancing the unit price or issuing additional units.

Unitholders get the benefit of the dividends through the increased value of the fund’s assets (and their share of those assets).
