Prior to beginning work on this discussion, read Chapter 12, and review the Chapter 12 “Mutual Funds and Exchange-Traded Funds” PowerPoint. In your discussion post, contrast the merits and drawbacks of investing through mutual funds versus investing directly in stocks and bonds. Your initial post must be a minimum of 200 words. Mutual funds are securities registered on the stock exchange that is managed by the portfolio managers, and the investments are made in the portfolio. A group of investors pools the money which is then invested and managed by the fund manager. Investors in a mutual fund do not own the portfolio, but the share of the securities they have invested in, and the profits and capital gains are distributed based on the percentage of holdings. Generally, there are two types of mutual funds open and closed-end funds. The management style, which represents the return estimates are also of two different types of active management and passive management.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
