Managed investment schemes are also known as ‘managed funds’, ‘pooled investments’ or ‘collective investments’. Generally in a managed investment scheme:

People are brought together to contribute money to get an interest in the scheme;
money is pooled together with other investors or used in a common enterprise;
a ‘responsible entity’ operates the scheme. Investors do not have day to day control over the operation of the scheme.
