A mutual fund is a type of investment where a group of people pools their money through a fund manager to invest in stocks, bonds, FDs, or other securities.
The fund manager makes the decision about where and how to invest (buy and sell) the money to get the best outcome. You can invest in many things without doing all the work yourself.
The goal of the mutual fund is to make money for everyone who has invested in it. You can choose where to invest by looking at their records, fund manager, and investment strategies.
The people who run the mutual fund are called fund managers. And have their charges to manage these investments.
Types of mutual funds in Nepal
An open-ended mutual fund in Nepal is a type of mutual fund that is continuously available for purchase by investors. This means there is no limit to the number of shares that can be issued, and investors can buy and sell shares of the fund at any time.
Open-Ended Mutual funds in Nepal are not traded in Nepse. The net asset value (NAV) determines the fund’s price.
A closed-ended mutual fund has a fixed number of shares issued during its initial public offering (IPO), which are then traded on a stock exchange like a regular stock.
Unlike open-ended mutual funds, investors cannot buy or redeem shares directly with the fund company. Instead, they must buy or sell shares on the secondary market in Nepal (NEPSE), just like any other stock.
The price is determined by supply and demand in the market, and it can trade at a premium or discount to its net asset value (NAV).
