General Information

Advantages of mutual funds

Mutual funds have become popular investment vehicle because they offer advantages such as:
        1.        Diversification
A single mutual fund can hold securities from hundreds or even thousands of issuers, far more than most investors could afford on their own. This diversification reduces the risk of investing in a particular company, industry or asset class.
2.        Professional management
Few investors have the time or expertise to manage their personal investments every day, to efficiently reinvest interest or dividend income, or to investigate the thousands of securities available in the financial markets. They prefer to rely on a mutual fund management company. With access to extensive research and market information, the fund manager makes these investment decisions on the behalf of the investor, thus effectively maximizing return and minimizing risk.
3.        Liquidity
Shares in a mutual fund can be bought and sold any business day, so investors have easy access to their money. While many individual securities can also be bought and sold readily, others aren't widely traded. In those situations, it could take several days or even longer to build or sell a position.
4.        Convenience
Mutual funds offer services that make investing easier. You can easily adjust your portfolio as your financial needs change. You can even schedule automatic investments into a fund from your bank account or you can arrange automatic transfers from a fund to your bank account to meet expenses. Most major fund companies offer extensive recordkeeping services to help you track your transactions, complete your tax returns, and follow your funds' performance.
5.        Transparency
Mutual fund prices are published daily and investors receive frequent updates about the progress of their investments.
UCITS DO NOT HAVE A GUARANTEED RETURN AND PREVIOUS PERFORMANCE DOES NOT GUARANTEE FUTURE RETURNS.
