Mutual funds can help lower investing risks

Take some of the anxiety out of investing by letting a mutual fund do a little of the work for you.
Give your money a chance to grow
Investing in mutual funds offers benefits you won’t get from trading individual stocks and bonds on your own.

Less risk through more diversification:
One mutual fund can invest in hundreds—sometimes thousands—of individual securities at once. So if any one security does poorly, the others are there to help offset that risk.

Lower costs:
With a no-load mutual fund, you pay one (hopefully low) expense ratio—instead of racking up the commissions you’d pay when buying and selling individual securities yourself.

Professional management:
You don’t have to keep track of every security your mutual fund owns. The fund is managed by experts who take care of that for you.

Convenience:
You can buy and sell mutual fund shares online or by phone and set up automatic investments and withdrawals.
