Empower Trust Collective Investment Trusts

Fund Disclosure Documents


What is a Collective Investment Trust (CIT)?

A CIT is a trust created and administered by a bank or trust company that commingles assets from multiple clients. A CIT is not registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), therefore it is not subject to the Investment Company Act of 1940. A CIT is, however, subject to banking regulations.
