An investment fund has been defined as a supply of capital belonging to various investors collectively used to purchase securities while each investor retains ownership and control of his own shares. This provides investors a greater selection of investment opportunities and lower investment fees. The types of investment funds include mutual funds, money market funds and hedge funds. By pooling your money with other investors, you can take advantage of investment opportunities easily compared to buying individual assets. However, before one decides to put their money into investment funds, it is important to first get yourself a good fund manager. A good fund manager can help your money grow and even provide you with a steady income. Here, at 3E, our fund managers will go the extra mile to find the most profitable opportunity for you and evaluate which funds actually have the potential to outperform the rest. The advantage of this kind of investment is that your investments are invested across different companies and you do not have to rely heavily on the fortunes of any single company.
A unit trust is a fund composed of investors’ money which is invested in a variety of financial assets. When you invest in a unit trust, your money is pooled with other investors’ to form a fund and invested into various assets to meet the unit trust’s objectives by a fund manager. The success of a unit trust depends on the expertise and experience of the company that manages it. You make money when the price of the units rises above the price you paid for the fund. Some funds even pay dividends. The price of each unit is based on the fund’s net asset value (NAV) divided by the number of units outstanding. The NAV is usually computed daily to reflect changes in the prices of the investments held by the fund.
In unit trust investments, fund managers run the trust for gains and profit, while trustees are assigned to ensure the fund manager runs the trust following the fund’s investment goals and objectives. It is also the trustees’ job to safeguard the assets of the trust.
A bond is basically a debt security, similar to an IOU. When one purchases a bond, you are lending money to a government, municipality, corporation, federal agency or other entity known as an issuer. In return for that money, the issuer provides you with a bond in which it promises to pay a specified rate of interest during the life of the bond and to repay the face value of the bond when it matures or is due. Investors normally put their money in bonds because they provide a predictable income stream and typically, bonds pay interest twice a year. Also, if the bonds are held to maturity, bondholders get back the entire principal, so bonds are a way to preserve capital while investing. Investors tend to prefer bonds because they are seen as less risky than some shares as they normally have a set repayment date. Also, in the event of the company being liquidated they are repaid from its assets if there are sufficient before shareholders are paid anything. Also, the prices of bonds tend to be less volatile.
Apart from the numerous investment opportunities mentioned above, one can also opt to put his or her money into shares or property. However, as for all investments, it is critical to ensure you get the best investment advice possible. Most tend to promise you high returns, not taking into consideration the risks involved.
