What is a managed fund?

When it comes to investing, there are various investment methods available to build and maintain wealth over the long-term. For example, depending on your circumstances, you may invest directly (e.g. share portfolio), indirectly (e.g. managed fund), or a combination of these.

Managed funds are professionally managed investment vehicles that allow investors to pool their money together to invest. They may differ in the way they invest (e.g. asset allocation, investment philosophy, risk tolerance and investment time horizon) and the fees and charges attached to them can differ.
