You work hard, earn a regular income and save some money as well. But we’re sure you also want to build your wealth and achieve your financial goals. The right way to go about it is to invest your money in financial instruments so that your money can earn more money for you!
Let’s say you decide to invest in the stock market. There are hundreds of companies to choose from and buying stocks or shares of even one company requires a lot of research and thinking such as understanding the business of the company, its financial position, performance of the stock market, etc. That too, assuming that you can understand all the financial jargon as your lack of in-depth knowledge to make suitable investment decisions may hamper your decision making. To manage your risk, you will need to buy stocks of different companies and other types of securities to diversify within and across asset classes. You may find it difficult to manage your portfolio as you will need to track multiple companies, and other asset classes. Some investments may even need significant investment outlay, which you may find difficult to fulfill.
Therefore, you need investment vehicles that can help you in accessing the right combination of stocks and securities to diversify your portfolio, while also being easy to manage.
Mutual funds help the individual investor overcome all these issues and more. These investment products combine different instruments such as stocks, bonds or both into a single product. These products are researched and managed by specialists in asset management companies called fund managers and these fund managers in turn are supported by specialized research analysts. Being wholesale or large investors, mutual funds also reduce the cost of investing since fund managers are able to negotiate much lower collective transaction fees (brokerage), as against an investor buying multiple stocks individually.
