A Guide to Mutual Fund Investing
Mutual funds have become a widely popular and effective way for investors to participate in financial markets in an easy, low-cost fashion, while muting risk characteristics by spreading the investment across different types of securities, also known as diversification.
Mutual funds can play a central role in an individual's investment strategy. They offer the potential for capital growth and income through investment performance, dividends and distributions under the guidance of a portfolio manager who makes investment decisions on behalf of fund shareholders.
In recent years, mutual funds have evolved to include a variety of sectors, investment strategies and structures to accommodate the objectives and risk tolerance of a wide range of investors.
