What are the benefits of investing in mutual funds?
Allowing investors, both individuals and institutions, the opportunity to invest in the stock market with minimal capital requirements.
What is the difference between investing in mutual funds and investing directly in the stock market?
Mutual funds allow investors the opportunity to invest in different sectors, reducing the overall risk of the fund. On the other hand, directly investing in the stock market restricts individual investors’ exposure to a limited number of companies, increasing the risk of their overall portfolio.
Are mutual funds subject to review?
Mutual funds are reviewed on a regular basis from an independent reviewer with their semi-annual and annual financial reports printed in two daily, widely recognized newspapers.
