Mutual Funds

What is a Mutual Fund?

A mutual fund is a professionally managed collection of securities such as stocks and bonds. The benefits of mutual funds are:

  • Professional portfolio management
  • Dividend & interest reinvestment
  • Risk reduction through diversification
  • Easy access to global opportunities

When you invest in mutual funds, you own a part of the holdings of the fund(s) and will benefit through potential increases in value and distributions of income.
