What is a Managed Fund?

Wonder what’s a managed fund? Managed funds are a popular way to build your wealth over the long term.

Managed funds provide a simple way to diversify your investment to reduce risk. If you have a limited amount of money to invest, instead of buying say a few shares you could invest in a managed fund to get access to a whole portfolio of shares to better spread your risk.

If you don’t have the time or knowledge to pick stocks and manage your investments yourself, you could leave this to professional investment managers to do it for you by investing in a managed fund.

How do managed funds work?

Managed funds combine your money with other people to invest into a fund that is managed by professionals.
