What is a managed fund?

A managed fund is a type of investment vehicle that pools together money from multiple investors and uses the funds to invest in a diversified portfolio of assets. Managed funds are typically run by professional money managers who make investment decisions on behalf of the fund’s investors.

Managed funds are a popular investment option because they offer investors the ability to diversify their investments across a range of assets and industries, which can help to reduce risk. Additionally, managed funds allow investors to access the expertise of professional money managers, who have specialised knowledge and experience in selecting and managing investments.

Managed funds come in a variety of different forms, including mutual funds, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), and unit trusts. Each type of managed fund has its own unique features and risks, and it is important to carefully research and compare different funds before making an investment decision.

In general, managed funds are considered to be a relatively safe and conservative investment option, as they offer investors the ability to diversify their investments and access professional money management. However, they also come with fees and expenses, which can eat into investors’ returns. As with any investment, it is important to carefully consider the risks and potential rewards of investing in a managed fund before making a decision.

“My greatest discovery was that a man must study general conditions, to size them so as to be able to anticipate probabilities.” -Jesse Livermore
