A mutual fund is a cost-effective way to invest in the market.
The Credential Asset Management Investment Specialists at Caisse Financial Group offer a wide range of mutual funds from the top fund companies.
How a mutual fund works
- A mutual fund combines the assets of many investors and invests the pooled funds in securities such as government treasury bills, government and corporate bonds, mortgages or stocks.
- The diversified portfolio of a mutual fund is designed to help soften the impact of market fluctuations.
- When you invest in a mutual fund you are buying units of the fund and each unit represents a portion of the fund value.
- Returns are earned in the form of interest, dividends or capital gains depending on the type of investments in the mutual fund.
- Returns are not guaranteed and are based on the performance of the investments in the mutual fund.
- A mutual fund can be held in a TFSA, RRSP, RRIF, RESP or a non-registered account.
- Management fees are charged based on the portfolio amount and the type of mutual fund.
- You can set up pre-authorized transfers from your chequing or savings account to your mutual fund to ensure you reach your savings objective.
