• What is a Mutual Fund?

    pic 36

    “Power pooling – to meet your investment goals.”

    A mutual fund is an investment allowing people to pool their money in a collection of stocks, bonds, and other securities.   Each investor owns units that represent a portion of the fund’s holdings.   When the mutual fund increases in value, you share that profit proportionally with everyone in the fund.

    Professionally managed:  mutual fund investments are handled by a fund manager (sometimes called a portfolio manager, money manager, or mutual fund manager).   Using their professional knowledge and experience, fund managers decide what stocks, bonds, cash or combinations the fund should buy or sell and when to do so.   The fund manager is paid a fee for his/her services.

    Liquidity:  at any time, mutual fund investors can sell their units.   Although mutual funds give you access to your money, be sure to note that you may incur fees and tax consequences for withdrawals.

    Affordability:  mutual fund companies offer a wide variety of funds with minimum investment requirements for all types of investors.
