Storyboard Text

  • Mutual Funds is the combination of money from more than one investor to buy a variety of investments such as bonds, stocks, real esate and more.
  • Because your investment isn't insured, there is a higher risk. So if the price drops you lose money.
  • Safety
  • But when you diversify your money in different stocks and bonds, the risk is lower. Let's say one bond drops the other stocks and bonds that you invested in will make up for the loss. 
  • There aren't restrictions with mutual funds. You can withdraw all or some of your money whenever.
  • Liquidity
  • Even so when you sell your shares, whatever the worth of your shares are is what you get paid. Sometimes the amount you get paid can be lower than what you put in.
  • Return
  •  Your Mutual Funds are professionally managed by an experienced money investing fund manager. A Fund Manager informs you when your fund buys and sells and takes care of your money.
  • Without money your mutual funds cannot function because you need it to pay your fund manager and also for business purposes. Mutuals Funds gain money by charging fees to anybody that invests in your funds.
  • Fees
  • Before investing in a mutual fund, you have to have an account with a bank, brokerage firm, or mutual fund company. These institutions are also  where mutual funds can be bought. Once purchased it will either be categorized as "load" or "no load" which means you're paying for commission or you aren't.
