Mutual Funds*

Mutual Funds

A mutual fund is a collection of stocks, bonds, or other securities owned by a group of investors and managed by a professional company. When you put your money into a fund, it is combined with money from similar-minded investors. This large pool of money gives you much greater purchasing power than you could possibly have investing on your own. "Pooling" of money is neither complicated nor exclusive to the mutual fund industry. If, for example, you and your co-workers put your money together to buy lottery tickets, you already know how "pooled" money works!
