Common types of mutual funds

Equity funds
Equity mutual funds invest primarily in stocks, which are essentially shares in the ownership of a company. These funds may be actively or passively managed. With actively managed equity funds, the portfolio manager selects each investment held by the fund. In contrast, passively managed equity funds are designed to track a specific equity index. Whether actively or passively managed, equity funds may invest in a broad range of equities across sectors, regions and market capitalizations.

Regardless of the fund’s specific holdings, the goal of most equity funds is to provide investors with long-term capital growth, as equities historically have higher rates of return than fixed-income securities. Keep in mind, however, that a higher potential return typically means a higher level of risk as well.
