What Are Mutual Funds? They Are Some Kinds Of Life Insurance Or What?

Postby Anane » Tue Jul 04, 2017 5:30 pm

A mutual fund is a type of professionally managed collective investment vehicle that pools money from many investors to purchase securities. While there is no legal definition of the term "mutual fund", it is most commonly applied only to those collective investment vehicles that are regulated and sold to the general public. They are sometimes referred to as "investment companies" or "registered investment companies." Most mutual funds are "open-ended," meaning investors can buy or sell shares of the fund at any time.


For a first time investor in equity , it is safer to start with mutual funds. After a few years of experience , he can start investing in equity directly.

They are not a kind of life insurance.

They are a pooled investment product, where the "fund" gets money from investors, and then uses that money to buy stocks, bonds, or other investments.
The investors own "shares" of the fund, which means that they indirectly own the things that the fund bought.

Mutual funds, are kind of like a bag with a whole bunch of different stocks, bonds, or other type of investments inside of it.
One share of a mutual fund, is a tiny bit of ownership interest in all the things in the bag.
