Discount
 
Definition: When used in the context of Investment Trusts, it describes the situation where the share price of a specific trust is trading at a lower value than the value of its underlying assets (i.e. its investment holdings). When an investment trust share is trading at a discount, it usually indicates good value - because it would cost more to purchase the individual assets to replicate the holdings held within the trust.
