  • Mutual Fund : 

     

    A mutual fund is an investment vehicle built with funds collected from many small investors that invests in stocks, bonds and other securities. An open-ended mutual fund is one which keeps accepting new investors and redeems the funds of those who wish to opt out, while a close-ended mutual fund has a fixed number of investors.

    .

    This is when a company raises money from the capital markets by issuing securities such as shares. The investors purchasing these shares become shareholders and receive ownership interests in the company.
