Mutual Funds

Mutual funds are investment vehicles that pool money from investors. The money is then invested across a wide variety of assets like stocks, bonds, gold, etc. depending on the investment objective to earn returns.

How do mutual funds work?

What are the benefits?

Over the years, mutual funds have emerged as a highly popular investment option among investors in India and across the globe. Here’s why mutual funds are beneficial:

  • Diversification: Mutual funds give you access to a diversified portfolio. If you had to invest directly, you would have had to shell out a lot of money for diversification. In contrast, using a minor amount, you can have access to a portfolio with investments across mutliple stocks or bonds.

  • Professional management: As an investor, you conduct your own research before buying a stock or bond. However, there are so many options out there that it can become confusing. A mutual fund, however, allows you to save time and resources in this research. Experts in the asset management company will be investing on your behalf through a mutual fund.

  • Timing: In the stock market, timing is one of the most important factors. A mutual fund allows you to sit back and relax, and not worry about buying or selling at the right time.

  • Transaction cost: When you buy a stock or bond, you have to pay a small amount as fees every time. Imagine, if you were to buy a hundred assets to diversify your portfolio, you had to pay a charge for each of them. This is not so for a mutual fund. All you have to do is pay a small fee once.
