What is Mutual Fund?

Mutual Fund is a basket of securities such as stocks and bonds, actively managed by qualified fund managers who carefully choose the assets under the mutual funds and continuously rebalance them to deliver the desired growth and to achieve the fund goals.

When you invest in mutual funds, your money will be combined with other investor’s money, and you will own a share of that fund. It is one of the best ways to invest in financial markets if you don’t have the required knowledge of choosing individual stocks, or don’t have the time to manage your investment.

Mutual funds have gained popularity over the past few decades as many funds have delivered a constant growth and decent returns.

There are many types of Mutual Funds in the market. Some of them invest in a specific sector such as technology or healthcare, a specific market such as Asian or US market or a specific strategy such as income or growth.

As a UAE resident, you have access to invest in the local, regional and international market Funds.
