As you probably know, I am a big fan and advocate of Mutual Fund Investments. It’s understandable since I am also a SEC licensed Mutual Fund Investment Representative – representing the family of funds under the First Metro Asset Management Inc (FAMI) — the Mutual Funds arm of the Metrobank Group.
Personally, I feel mutual funds are a really wonderful investment vehicle that every Filipino should consider or at least should be aware of.
My biases aside, this article discusses the following advantages of Mutual Funds:
3. Professional Management
4. Automatic Diversification
5. Automatic Reinvestment
6. Tax-Free Capital Gains
7. Economies of Scale
And to strike a balance, towards the end of the article, you will also learn about the disadvantages of Mutual Funds.
After reading the article, you should be able to decide if Mutual Fund is the right or the wrong investment for you.
