Mutual Fund

A mutual fund is an open-end professionally managed investment fund that pools money from many investors to purchase securities. These investors may be retail or institutional in nature. The term is typically used in the United States, while similar structures across the globe include the SICAV in Europe and open-ended investment company in the UK. Mutual funds have advantages and disadvantages compared to direct investing in individual securities. Advantages of mutual funds include economies of scale, diversification, liquidity, and professional management. However, these come with mutual fund fees and expenses. Not all investment funds are mutual funds; alternative structures include unit investment trusts, closed-end funds, and exchange-traded funds. These alternative structures share similarities such as liquidity due to trading on exchanges and, in the United States, similar consumer protections under the Investment Company Act of 1940.
