Action Doesn't Make Money in Mutual Funds
What is a Mutual Fund?
Let us understand what a Mutual Fund is in a simple way.
There are five companies named Company A, B, C, D and E
The share price of the Company A, B, C, D and E are as follows
|Company Name||Share Price (Rs.)|
There are 10 people who are interested in investing in these five companies and plan to buy the shares of the companies. Each person have Rs. 500 with them. They cannot buy the shares of all the companies as the shares prices are more than the amount they have as an individual.
All the 10 people can only buy the share of company D as its share price is Rs. 400 and they have Rs. 500 with them each.
So all the 10 people come together and decide to pool in Rs. 500 each and buy the shares of these five companies. (500*10 = 5000)
As per their contribution of Rs. 500, each person gets 1 unit. (5000/10).
Now all the 10 people together own shares of the five companies and individually are a part owner in these five companies.
