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.

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