  • Investment Company : 

    This is a company that invests the pooled funds of a large number of retail investors to buy and sell shares. It gives individual investors access to a wider range of securities than the investors themselves would have been able to access. An open-ended investment company is one which keeps accepting new investors and redeems the funds of those who wish to opt out, whereas a close-ended investment company has a fixed number of investors.
