Mutual funds

  • Mutual funds offer the advantage of professional management
  • Investors in mutual funds may benefit from diversification
  • Ameriprise Financial offers access to more than 3,500 funds from nearly 300 fund companies

A mutual fund is a company that pools money from many investors and invests the money in stocks, bonds, short-term money market instruments, other securities or assets, or a combination of these investments.

Because professional managers provide ongoing supervision of mutual fund holdings, mutual funds can be a quick and efficient means of managing money.

In addition, mutual funds may provide diversification, an important element of a well-rounded investment portfolio.
