A mutual fund is an investment vehicle managed by investment professionals that allows a large group of investors to pool their money and invest in securities, such as stocks, bonds, money market instruments and similar assets. When money is pooled, it creates greater buying power, making it possible for investors to access a wider range of investments. The pool of money is invested by the fund managers to produce capital gains and income for the fund’s investors. Each investor in a fund owns shares that represent a part of a fund’s portfolio of holdings, which is structured and maintained to match the investment objectives stated in its prospectus.
