Who is this for?
Anyone set on building their savings may be interested in investing in mutual funds. Investing in mutual funds can be a wise investment decision for just about any timeline – from young people who have the time to allow their investments to grow to retirees looking to draw income from their investments.
Investing in mutual funds involves placing your money in a larger pool of funds managed by a group of professional money managers. By doing this, you can more effectively diversify your investment portfolio than you may be able to do when making your own investment decisions.

Funds when you need them
Unlike many other types of investments, mutual fund units can be “cashed out” at just about any time. Just remember that, when you go to withdraw money from your mutual fund, the amount available will depend on the fund unit’s value on that day.*
