Collective Investment Trusts
A Collective Investment Trust (CIT) is an institutional-only investment structure that is exclusively available to certain types of tax-exempt retirement plans. CITs are sponsored by banks or trust companies (e.g., Matrix Trust Company) that act as trustee and are responsible for the CIT’s management. The structure of each CIT allows for the combination of assets from different retirement plan accounts into a single fund with a specific investment strategy or objective, thereby leveraging the benefits of economies of scale. CITs may invest in a wide range of active or passive vehicles, including equities, fixed income, mutual funds, exchange traded funds (ETFs), and other CITs.
