Terms of Use    

Mutual funds can be a good way for people to invest in stocks, bonds, and other securities. Why?

  • Mutual funds are managed by professional money managers.
  • By owning shares in a mutual fund instead of buying individual stocks or bonds directly, your investment risk is spread out.
  • Because your mutual fund buys and sells large amounts of securities at a time, its costs are often lower than what you would pay on your own.
