Mutual funds are popular investments because they offer a cost-effective and efficient way to diversify your investments (or own a variety of securities — stocks, bonds, etc.) without having to make a large initial investment.

Mutual Funds are among the hottest favorites with all types of investors. Investing in mutual funds ranks among one of the preferred ways of creating wealth over the long term. In fact, mutual funds represent the hands-off approach to entering the equity market. There are a wide variety of mutual funds that are viable investment avenues to meet a wide variety of financial goals.

When you purchase shares of a mutual fund, you’re pooling your money with other investors and letting the mutual fund (which is simply a professional money management company) invest and manage the money to help meet the fund’s specified investment goal (e.g., growth, income, or a combination of the two).

Investing in Mutual Funds

Because they are professionally managed and offer diversification with generally a small initial investment, mutual funds can be suitable for most investors.

Your Financial Advisor has the tools to help you choose the right fund or basket of funds to meet your unique goals. Work closely with your Financial Advisor to develop a mutual fund portfolio that’s suitable for your specific situation.

You should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses of a mutual fund company before investing in one or more of its mutual funds.
