Mutual funds

Key Points

  • Mutual funds offer the advantage of professional management

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.
