- Or (collective + investment) + scheme, or some obvious mixture of the two. Delete. 126.96.36.199 01:52, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
- Did you know that, per WP, investment funds, managed funds, mutual funds come under the head of "collective investment scheme"? I did not. I still do not know what exactly comes under the head, which is why I think the head is worth having a definition. Anyway, here comes a quotation that suggests a need for a definition, even if not the present definition:
2003, Jonathan Fisher, Jane Bewsey, The Law of Investor Protection:
- The definition of primary importance is of course the definition of "collective investment scheme" itself. That is to be found in s.235 of FSMA 2000.
- Looking at Google books shows further occurrences of "collective investment scheme" that suggest that the phrase is a set one, with a meaning that can decide the result of a trial at a court.
- Some of the Google books actually define the term.
- In the quotation above, "FSMA 2000" refers to "The Financial Services and Markets Act 2000", a UK act. --Dan Polansky 19:10, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
- Keep under the emerging inclusion of (or re-emphasis on) the "legal definition" criterion for inclusion as an idiom (Item 4 on our rendition of the Pawley list). See #ground beef, WT:BP#Legal definitions.. DCDuring TALK 18:18, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
