Investment Basics

The ABC of Investing

Smart investing starts with understanding the basics. Becoming familiar with the fundamental concepts will help you make smart and effective investment decisions.

What are Mutual Funds?

Mutual funds are investment tools that provide a convenient way to participate in equity and bond markets and other asset investment opportunities across the world.

The funds pool money from a group of investors seeking capital growth in similarly defined target investments.

Investing in a mutual fund lets you access a larger pool of assets than you could as an individual. The funds enable you to put your money into a wide variety of securities including stocks, bonds, and money market instruments.

Mutual funds are very cost effective investments because the expenses are shared by other investors and across a large pool of assets. You can invest in a mutual fund with just a few thousand dollars.

Each fund is managed by professional fund managers so you get the same expertise working for you as large corporations have working for them.
