The Securities and Exchange Commission(SEC) is responsible for overseeing how the mutual fund companies are keep up with government standards.

Mutual funds are divided into open-ended or closed-ended funds. Open-ended funds are open to new buyers and the fund can continue to grow with no limit on the number of buyers. Closed-end funds open with a limited amount of shares. Once the shares are depleted, the fund manager closes the fund. Closed-ended funds are usually on the New York Stock Exchange or the American Stock Exchange.

There are 4 types of mutual funds: Stock funds, Bond funds, Money market funds and Balanced (Asset Allocated Funds) or Life Cycle Funds. Stock funds are on the New York Stock Exchange, the American Stock Exchange and NASDAQ. Bond funds allow investors to gain interest from a company's loan. The risk with this type of fund is the possibility of losing the principal invested in the bond. Money market funds are the most safest investment option. Investors have the option of drawing on these funds. Money market funds are not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Company (FDIC). Balanced funds are mixed funds of stocks, bonds, and cash reserves. These funds offer a high return dividends and interest with low risk involved. The Life Cycle Fund is one of the newest available mutual funds. These funds take the management responsibilities from the investor and put on the shoulders of the mutual fund company. This funds group together the stock, bond and money market funds for an enhanced portfolio.
