Witan offers free share dealing on invt trusts

Witan is offering free share dealing on all lump sum Isa investments and Pep transfers in its £1.4bn Witan global growth and £140m Pacific investment trusts from March 1 to April 30, 2008.

Witan Pacific has returned 56.37 per cent since it adopted an open architecture structure in May 2005.”
