Investors can earn money from a mutual fund through income earned from dividends (for dividend paying funds) and through capital gains.
Mutual funds are priced as per the Net Asset Value (NAV). NAV, which represents the market value of the fund per unit, is used by investors while purchasing and selling units from as well as to a Mutual Fund Company. NAV can be calculated by using the formula mentioned below:
NAV = Total value of all cash and securities in a Mutual Fund’s portfolio (less any liabilities) ÷ Total number of units in the Mutual Fund.
Mutual funds can be categorized as follows:
- Equity Funds – As the name suggests, this category of mutual fund invests primarily in stocks and is known as equity funds. This asset class can be both actively and passively managed and is typically categorized based on the company size, demography, and the investment style of the holdings in the portfolio.
- Bond Funds – Bond funds are comparatively less risky than equity funds. Also known as debt funds or fixed-income funds, bond funds aim to generate fixed monthly income for investors by investing in government, municipal, corporate, and convertible bonds which are comparatively less risky and secured.
- Balanced Funds – This category of mutual funds is synonymously known as hybrid funds. They comprise of both debt component and stock or equity component in a single portfolio with a specific ratio for each. These mutual funds diversify investment of the investors, thereby reducing their portfolio risk.
- Money Market Funds – Money market mutual funds refer to fixed-income mutual funds that can be categorized as low-risk investments. These investments are typically made in cash, cash equivalent securities, or high-credit-rating, debt-based securities with a short-term maturity. The primary goal of money market funds is to provide high liquidity to investors with a lower level of risk.
