Mutual funds are funds that help an investor in making money by either allowing him to save the money that he invested or earn dividends and gain returns. Not only are the mutual funds one of the easiest and the best ways to make money but also require continuous monitoring. However, professional money managers working with the fund prepare a portfolio for each person and take care of the monitoring, buying and selling. This helps you to make money while you’re occupied with your work by not requiring constant attention. The mutual funds also help in diversifying your investment and minimising the losses by investing in several bodies at once than investing in a single body. As an investor, one is supposed to know which fund to invest in. Here again, you can choose to invest in either an open ended mutual fund or a closed ended mutual fund.

Open ended mutual funds are more popular and are in vast majority when compared to closed end mutual funds. These kinds of funds do not have any limits or restrictions on the amount of shares that can be issued whereas in closed end mutual funds, one cannot purchase any shares from the fund beyond the given limit.

One has to carefully choose the right mutual fund before investing. One has to carefully invest in the funds that have consistently topped the lists to avoid unnecessary circumstances.
