Mutual Fund Investments

With a little thought you should be able to decide the type of mutual funds to invest in. Once you know which mutual funds are a good fit for your needs and wants. Most all of mutual funds you invest in are either money market funds, stock funds, balanced funds or bond funds. Money market funds are some of the most popular types of mutual funds investments because they are one of the safest money making vehicle. Money market mutual funds are a great investment because they are short term investments. You can get your money out of a money market mutual funds investment vehicle fairly easily without any penalties.

Another type of mutual funds investment is bond funds. Bond mutual funds are longer term investment vehicles than money market funds. You can invest in bond funds that are issued by the US government, municipalities, and corporations. If you want a higher rate of return in a mutual fund investment, you may want to invest in municipal bonds because they are usually tax exempt. The price of bond funds fluctuate with the economy, so if you invest in bond funds you are taking more of a risk than if you were to invest in a money market fund.

One of the more risky types of mutual fund is stock funds. When you invest in stock funds, it is similar to investing in the stock market. When the stock market takes a financial hit for a certain type of stock, you will also take a financial hit when you invest in mutual stock of the same type. Because there is more risk in stock funds, your rate of return will be higher. If you are interested in longer term investment that will give you a higher rate of return, then stock funds might be a viable option. A good rule of thumb to follow when investing in stock funds is not to invest any more money than you are willing to lose, because there is a risk of losing your investment.

If you are interested in a long term investment that will help you prepare for your retirement or college tuition for your children, you might want to invest in balanced funds. Balanced funds are a combination of money market, and stocks and bonds. Before investing in any mutual fund, do your research. It may also be to your advantage to consult with a mutual funds advisor.
