Mutual funds are a common type of investment. They allow you to pool your money with other investors to “mutually” buy a basket of investments (like stocks, bonds and other investments). Professional fund managers curate and manage mutual funds to help you achieve your investment goals.

Mutual funds are an easy way to help diversify your portfolio, which means spreading your investments over several kinds of asset classes, geographic markets and investment styles according to your risk tolerance.
