Whether you are a new investor or an experienced one, investing
in mutual funds may be an easy way to diversify your holdings. A
growing segment of the investment market, mutual funds are
professionally managed portfolios whose shares are sold to the
public in much the same way that stocks are.
Think of a mutual fund as a way for a giant group of people to
pool their money together to have more purchasing power. If you
were to invest $100 a month into the stock market, you wouldn't be
able to buy many shares. But if thousands of people invest $100
each month, as a group they buy substantial share.
Because fund managers can afford to purchase more shares, they
are able to better diverify fund holdings. This, in turn, generally
provides you with an instantly diversified portfolio.
Funds are grouped together based on factors such as risk
tolerance and strategies. After reviewing your personal
circumstances, choose a fund with an objective that adheres to your
risk tolerance, timeframe and goals.
