Funds and investment

Investment funds are investment vehicles that pool the money of investors and invest it in an investment portfolio that is comprised of bonds, stocks or other assets. Each fund is managed by a fund manager who makes decisions about the items to purchase or sell and also charges a management fee. There are various kinds of investment funds. These include unit trusts (UCITS), OEICs and open ended investments companies (OEIGCs).

When investing in funds it is important to consider the motives behind doing so and also your investment profile, which will reflect your risk tolerance, and how long you’re planning to invest. Younger investors, for instance may have more time to invest and be more comfortable taking on a higher risk level in order to achieve the highest growth over the long term.

In terms of saving one of the most effective ways to reduce risk is through diversification. Diversification refers to spreading your money across various types of assets with less correlation in their price fluctuations. This allows you to reduce the value loss in one asset class by the gain of another asset class.

Another way to minimize the risk is to utilize smart beta or low-cost investments. These are funds managed in a passive manner which attempt to replicate fluctuations of a particular stock market index such as the FTSE 100, or S&P 500 without the need for judgment.
