One of the alternatives for investors to make investments is via the use of mutual funds. They, like any other kind of investment, come with some degree of risk. When making investment selections, investors should evaluate the different instruments in terms of the risks involved and the predicted returns after taking into account the impact of taxes. During the process of making investment selections, investors may seek guidance from a variety of specialists and consultants, including agents and distributors of mutual fund schemes.
