Why Managed Funds Make an Awesome Investment
A managed fund is a pool of investments that is managed professionally by an expert fund manager. In a managed fund, your money is pooled together with other investors' money to create a single fund that provides significant investor benefits, which include an instant increase in buying strength and tax efficiencies. An investment manager then buys and sells shares or other assets on behalf of all investors.
There are many tax advantages of using managed funds and unlike KiwiSaver, you can have any number of managed funds with different providers.
Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs)
An exchange-traded fund (ETF) is a type of pooled investment security that operates much like a managed fund. Typically, ETFs will track a particular index, sector, commodity, or other assets, but unlike managed funds, ETFs can be purchased or sold on a stock exchange the same way that a regular stock can.
An ETF can be structured to track anything from the price of an individual commodity to a large and diverse collection of securities. ETFs can even be structured to track specific investment strategies.
An index fund is a type of managed fund or exchange-traded fund (ETF) with a portfolio constructed to match or track the components of a financial market index, such as the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index (S&P 500).
An index mutual fund is said to provide broad market exposure, low operating expenses, and low portfolio turnover. These funds follow their benchmark index regardless of the state of the markets.

Michael is also an independent advisor and is not aligned with specific providers. This means his recommendation is always the best one for the clients situation."
