There are many advantages of investing in investment funds. Through one single product, you gain exposure to many assets. So, if some of the assets in the fund are not performing well, others may be performing well, which helps to spread risk.
As a private investor, it can be challenging to enter certain markets and sectors. Certain investment funds may provide you with access to more markets that you would not usually be able to reach.
Another feature that is relatively unique to investment funds is that you benefit from the knowledge and expertise of the fund manager. Instead of constantly researching and choosing many individual investments yourself, skilled professionals do the work for you. However, before deciding on an investment fund, you should do your research to make sure it is compatible with your investment plan.Open an account
Investing in investment funds can be beneficial, but it is not without risk. It is important to be aware of all the types of risk that may arise, which can also vary from one fund to another. We advise you to only invest in financial products that match your knowledge and experience.
Since investment funds are typically actively managed, it comes with a cost. These costs are included in the price of the investment fund. Most of them charge between 0.5%-2.0% on an annual basis. It is wise to check this before investing, as ongoing charges can impact returns on investment. The exact costs are stated in the KIID or KID and the Prospectus.
