What is a Mutual funds?

A company dealing in mutual funds invests the money of several investors in bonds, stocks, securities, assets and several other short-term money-market plans. The combined holdings owned by the mutual fund are known as its portfolio.

When you invest in a mutual fund you become a shareholder of the company. Each share in a mutual fund company is the representation of he investor's proportionate ownership of the fund holdings and the income generated. You earn dividends when the mutual fund company earns a profit, however, your shares will decrease in value if it faces a loss. A professional investment manager does the buying and selling of securities for the growth of the fund.
