About Mutual Funds

The basic premise of mutual funds remains the same after more than 80 years: investors pool their money together to invest in a portfolio of securities, usually either stocks or bonds or a combination of both, which is managed by an investment professional.

Benefits of Mutual Funds:

Diversification: mutual funds invest in a broad range of securities and asset classes

Professional Management: specialized knowledge and research in buying & selling securities

Convenience: benefits of a diversified portfolio with just one purchase

Ease of Investing: can open, add to or redeem your account on any business day

Purchasing Power: only wealthy investors could accumulate positions similar to mutual funds

Liquidity: investors can easily sell units at any time

Flexibility: there is a fund to match virtually every investing need

Record-keeping Service: confirmation of transactions and necessary reporting for tax purposes

Investor Protection: mutual funds are highly regulated, ensuring operating standards

Distribution Options: earnings distributed to unitholders in a variety of beneficial ways

Tax-deferral advantages: CI Corporate Class gives you the advantage of an RSP with no contribution limit
