Fifth Third Securities - Mutual Funds

How Mutual Funds Work

When you buy shares in a mutual fund, your money is combined with money from other shareholders to buy shares in securities such as stocks, bonds, money market instruments, and other similar assets. The pooled assets are invested and managed by professional money managers. Each shareholder may earn interest or dividends from the pool assets that mutual fund is invested in.

Risk vs. Reward

Mutual funds are not risk-free. When deciding what type of fund to choose, you need to consider the risk versus return level, research the fund manager and company, and carefully read the prospectus for information on fees and potential risks.

Fifth Third Securities offers over 10,000 mutual funds, for all types of investors. Get in touch with a Fifth Third Securities Financial Professional to determine if mutual funds are right for you.
