Mutual-Fund


Definition: A mutual fund is a professionally-managed investment scheme, usually run by an asset management company that brings together a group of people and invests their money in stocks, bonds and other securities.

Description: As an investor, you can buy mutual fund units, which basically represent your share of holdings in a particular scheme. These units can be purchased or redeemed as needed at the funds current net asset value (NAV). These NAVs keep fluctuating, according to the funds holdings. So, each investor participates proportionally in the gain or loss of the fund.

All the mutual funds are registered with SEBI. They function within the provisions of strict regulation created to protect the interests of the investor.

The biggest advantage of investing through a mutual fund is that it gives small investors access to professionally-managed, diversified portfolios of equities, bonds and other securities, which would be quite difficult to create with a small amount of capital.
