Mutual Fund and ETF Investments
Access the best investment & mutual funds
Access to Markets
Whether you are someone who is just starting and wants your investments professionally managed, or you don’t have the time to monitor and manage your investments daily, investment funds can be a very effective tool to grow your wealth. Investing together with many people into a fund gives you easy access to the global financial markets and institutional investing that you wouldn’t be able to do yourself.
What is a fund
Generally referred to as mutual funds in the US and Canada, in Europe or internationally they are more commonly called unit trusts. They are professionally managed, regulated, collective investment vehicles that pool money from many investors to invest in the financial markets. In a nutshell, when you invest in a fund, you hold units of that fund and when the fund’s assets increase or decrease in value, so does the unit price you own.
Funds are often categorized as money market funds, bond or fixed-income funds, stock or equity funds, property or absolute return funds. They can be actively-managed funds with a professional fund manager and a management team making decisions daily about the fund’s holdings, or passively managed funds such as index funds and ETFs, where they track a financial index like the S&P500.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is this a good time to invest in the markets?
With regular investment strategies, it is always a good time to invest because with regular investing the idea is to take timing the markets out of the equation. The question is not whether it is a good time to invest, but are you actively investing.
Should I wait until the markets are less volatile?
With regular investing the objective is to use the volatility in the markets to your advantage and take out the need to time the markets. As the market falls in value one month you are purchasing more for the same amount, as the markets rise in value you purchase less. Over time you’ll average out the markets, and reduce the overall risk in your investment.
