Details

A Mutual Fund is a pool of money that gives investors access to a well-diversified portfolio of stocks, bonds, and other securities. Each shareholder participates in the gain or loss of the fund. Shares are issued and can be redeemed as needed (in the case of an open-ended fund). The fund's net asset value (NAV) is determined each day and is posted on the respective Asset Management Company's website on a daily basis.

Equity Funds

An equity fund is one that is invested mainly in a company's equity through the stock exchange and is exposed to the risk of volatility associated with the equity market. Although this fund is the riskiest within the genre of mutual funds, it is also known to provide the maximum yields and dividends.

Fixed Income Funds

A Fixed Income Fund is one that offers fixed returns over a set tenor. These funds are inherently linked to the general interest rate and are, unlike the stock market, safe from drastic fluctuation. The capital value is more easily sustainable while the returns are generally modest. However, active fund management can yield returns which are higher than most fixed income avenues in the market and therefore, it is an attractive investment avenue for investors with moderate risk appetites.

Money Market Funds

A Money Market Fund is one that invests in liquid, short-term securities which offer fixed returns over short periods. These funds are inherently linked to the general interest rate and are, therefore, unlike the stock market, safe from drastic fluctuation. Underlying investment may include securities issued by corporate bodies, spread transactions, reverse-repo transactions, selective exposure in the CFS market, Term Finance Certificates (TFCs) and commercial paper.

Balanced Funds

These funds maintain a mix within equity and fixed income markets. This fund offers room to its fund managers to switch between different investment types i.e. fixed income and capital markets. Effectively, the risk associated to this category lies between equity funds and fixed income funds and the returns also vary correspondingly between the ranges of the two.
