A mutual fund is an investment vehicle that pools money from many investors to invest in a diversified portfolio of securities based on the specified objectives of the fund. Mutual funds offer several advantages such as professional management, diversification, liquidity, and convenience. Liquidity exists because the investor owns shares in the fund instead of the assets within it and can resell these shares back to the fund at their current value. Mutual funds can help manage risk but do not guarantee against loss. Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses of each company's products carefully before investing.
