For the mutual fund you will need to tell us which fund you researched - there are a number of funds within each fund family - its symbol, its current price, the fees, what is the history, what type of fund, and what you like or don't like about it.
There are a number of fund families such as Vanguard, American Funds, Franklin Templeton, Invesco, Legg Mason, and others. Dig deep and be complete.
American Funds Capital World Growth/Income
Symbol- RWIFX Class R-5
Current price- $36.29
52 week range - $30.82-36.90
Expenses – 0.5% Management fees 0.38% Other expenses – 0.12%
Type of Fund: open-ended fund.
Class R shares are generally available only to retirement plans. Class R-5 are generally available only to fee-based programs or through retirement plan intermediaries. No dealer compensation is paid from fund assets on sales of Class R-5 or R-6 shares.
I like that the expenses are low. It is a lower risk fund. Although it is a growth fund, it doesn’t seem to fluctuate that much.

...Perception towards Mutual Funds Dr. Nishi Sharma1 Abstract The concept of mutual fund emerged in Netherlands in 18th century and introduced in India by Unit Trust of India in1960s. As the mutual fund industry provides an option of diversified investment structure with varying degree of risk, it was supposed to be the most lucrative market for Indian investors. It was believed that it will surely tap the savings of common man. But in practice it failed to become a primary choice for investment to Indian investor. During almost six decades (1965-2011) the value of assets under management of mutual fund industry experienced great swings. As against the developed countries where almost every second investor is a mutual unit holder, the product could not get much popularity in India. In this reference, the present paper attempts to investigate the reasons responsible for lesser recognition of mutual fund as a prime investment option. It examines the investor’s perception with reference to distinct features provided by mutual fund companies to attract them for investing in specific funds/schemes. The study uses principal component analysis as a tool for factor reduction. The paper explored three factors named as fund/scheme related attributes, monetary benefits and sponsor’s related attributes (having respectively six, four and four variables) which may be offered to investors for securing their patronage. The results are expected to provide fruitful insight to mutual fund......

Tackling Conflict ofInterestinDistribution of Financial Products 2.1 Itis axiomatic that any industry, in orderto achieve scale and high productivity, must be free of internal contradictions and conflicts of interest. Financialsector is no exception. The financial product distribution space is particularly fraught with these conflicts between the manufacturers of financial products like banks, mutual funds, and insurance companies, etc. and the distributors which sell these products who call themselves by various nameslike agents,financial advisors,financial planners, etc. 2.2 It is necessary to resolve or at least mitigate these conflicts, especially in the case of financial products because of their two peculiar characteristics. Firstly, the products arePage 2 of 11 intangible and conceptually more difficult to understand. Secondly, the pay‐offs are in a distant future and can be camouflaged by several factors externalto the product.

Unfortunately many mutual fund investor have probably never heard about these research results or their implications.

...MUTUAL FUND A Mutual fund is a pool of money, collected from investors and is invested according to certain investment objectives. A Mutual fund is created when investors put their money together. It is therefore a pool of the investor’s funds. The most important characteristic of the Mutual fund is that the contributories and the beneficiaries are the same class of people, namely the investors. The term mutual means that the investors contribute to the pool, and also benefit from the pool. There are no other claimants to the funds. The pool of funds held mutually by investors is the mutual fund. A Mutual fund business is to invest the funds thus collected, according to the wishes of the investors who created the pool. Usually the investors appoint professional investment managers, to manage their funds. The same objective is achieved when professional investment managers create a ‘product’ and offer it for investments to the investors. The product represents a share in the pool and pre states investment objectives. FEATURES AND CHARACTERISTICS OF MUTUAL FUND A mutual fund is a financial intermediary and works as an investment company. It has distinct features and characteristics which differentiate it from other financial intermediaries. Some of the features of mutual fund are:  Mutual fund is a pool of financial resources.

...Performance Evaluation of Mutual Funds in Pakistan S. M. AAMIR SHAH and SYED TAHIR HIJAZI* INTRODUCTION In Pakistan Mutual Funds were introduced in 1962, when the public offering of National Investment (Unit) Trust (NIT) was introduced which is an open-end mutual fund. In 1966 another fund that is Investment Corporation of Pakistan (ICP) was establishment. ICP subsequently offered a series of closed-end mutual funds. Up to early 1990s, twenty six (26) closed-end ICP mutual funds had been floated by Investment Corporation of Pakistan. After considering the option of restructuring the corporation, government decided to wind up ICP in June, 2000. In 2002, the Government started Privatisation of the Investment Corporation of Pakistan. 25 Out of 26 closed-end funds of ICP were split into two lots. There had been a competitive bidding for the privatisation of funds. Management Right of Lot-A comprising 12 funds was acquired by ABAMCO Limited. Out of these 12, the first 9 funds were merged into a single closed-end fund and that was named as ABAMCO Capital Fund, except 4th ICP mutual fund as the certificate holders of the 4th ICP fund had not approved the scheme of arrangement of Amalgamation into ABAMCO capital fund in their extra ordinary general meeting held on December 20, 2003. The fund has therefore been reorganised as a separate closedend trust and named as ABAMCO Growth Fund. Rest of the three funds were merged into another single and named as ABAMCO Stock Market Fund.

...What is Candlestick Trading? Back in the day when Godzilla was still a cute little lizard, the Japanese created their own old school version of technical analysis to trade rice. A westerner by the name of Steve Nison “discovered” this secret technique on how to read charts from a fellow Japanese broker and Japanese candlesticks lived happily ever after. Steve researched, studied, lived, breathed, ate candlesticks, began writing about it and slowly grew in popularity in 90s. To make a long story short, without Steve Nison, candle charts might have remained a buried secret. Steve Nison is Mr. Candlestick. Okay so what the heck are forex candlesticks? The best way to explain is by using a picture: Candlesticks are formed using the open, high, low and close. • If the close is above the open, then a hollow candlestick (usually displayed as white) is drawn. • If the close is below the open, then a filled candlestick (usually displayed as black) is drawn. • The hollow or filled section of the candlestick is called the “real body” or body. • The thin lines poking above and below the body display the high/low range and are called shadows. • The top of the upper shadow is the “high”. • The bottom of the lower shadow is the “low”. Just like humans, candlesticks have different body sizes. And when it comes to forex trading, there’s nothing naughtier than checking out the bodies of candlesticks! Long bodies indicate strong buying or selling. The longer the body is...

...Paper topic: Mutual Funds vs ETFs: historical data, argumentative analysis and position. Introduction Mutual Fund is a term, meaning joint venture. As the human minds evolve more civilized, it also has undergone many evolutionary postures. Formerly it was practiced as close ended mutual fund in which combined investment had limits. Simply in those funds a restricted number of investors were allowed to play. As a result they used to have limited profit. While following the same pattern some innovative thoughts were put together along with the basic ingredients of the recipe of mutual funds to make it more reproductive. The consequences resulted in the body of open ended mutual funds. These open ended funds are still hailing the demanding curse of present age. Using the mutual fund scheme was more beneficial for the investors and was less fruitful for the manager or the body managing and investing the funds. Therefore to make more money from limited funds a newer system was stemmed into the fabric of trade. That system was to engage poor into this business by investing money in the form of blocks. This trick helped the managing body to withdraw more money out of the flow in the form of commission. On the contrary it involved less investment share which was easy to contribute by an average investors. Hence it had the characteristics of close ended mutual fund accompanied by replication of index. This system was easy to manipulate and friendly to the......
