What is Mutual Fund ?

Mutual funds are investment companies that pool money from investors at large and offer to sell and buy ba ck its shares on a continuous basis and use the capital thus raised to invest in securities of different companies.

Mutual funds can be either or both of open ended and closed ended investment companies depending on their fund management pattern. An open-end fund offers to sell its shares (units) continuously to investors either in retail or in bulk without a limit

on the number as opposed to a closed-end fund. Closed end funds have limited number of shares.

Is it a good strategy to invest during a fund launch (NFO)?

  • Generally it has been portrayed that the investor will lose out in case of investment not made during the initial offer period, but it is the time when we should include the most worth and potential scheme in our portfolio.
  • Instead of focusing that NFOs are available at just Rs.10/- , an investor should be wise enough to look at the theme, objective, proposed investment style and the future prospects of the NFO and choose them accordingly.
