If you’re wondering if mutual funds meet your financial requirements, consider the many benefits they have to offer you as an investor. Basically, a mutual fund is a collection of individual securities, such as stocks and bonds. Picture a company that brings a group of people together then invests the group’s money in stocks, bonds and other securities. When you invest in mutual funds, you own a part of the holdings of the fund.
After gaining an understanding of your risk tolerance, ranging from conservative to aggressive, our qualified Qtrade Investment Advisors and Mutual Fund Representatives will help you determine how mutual funds can fit into your investment portfolio. We can suggest a range of options to match your investor profile and suit your investment strategy, whatever your goals.
Mutual funds are available to our members through our partnership with Qtrade. Choose from an unlimited selection of top quality mutual funds with trusted names like Fidelity, Invesco, Franklin Templeton, and Meritas SRI Funds, one of Canada's leading providers of socially responsible investing ('SRI') solutions.
Diversity is a good place to start because each mutual fund is made up of a portfolio of different securities (for example, stocks and bonds). By diversifying your holdings, you’re not putting all of your money in one place – reducing overall risk.
Liquidity is another plus, since you can purchase most mutual funds or cash them in with limited penalty (if any) on relatively short notice.
For the average investor, creating a well-balanced portfolio of individual securities can be very expensive. Incorporating mutual funds into your portfolio opens up many opportunities since you can participate in a wide array of investments that you may not be able to as an individual.
