AIC publishes list of trusts with significant pharma holdings

24th April 2014

The Association of Investment Companies has issued a list of investment trusts that have significant exposure to pharmaceutical companies given current speculation about Novartis and GlaxoSmithKline. Pharmaceutical share prices have risen following the announcement of an asset swap and merger of consumer health units, as well as speculation of a takeover bid of AstraZeneca by Pfizer.

Investment companies across a number of Association of Investment Company (AIC) sectors have significant exposure to global pharmaceuticals.
