Know about the advantages of Investment Funds

If you are in a higher income occupation, you can make handsome money from working at a traditional job. But when it comes to making money for investment purposes, it is difficult to beat the benefits that come from having your business.

The prospective for unlimited income

One of the most common investment benefits cited for having your business is the prospective to earn unlimited profits. Although it is possible to earn dollars from a job, the cut-throat competition for the corner office will keep the number of people at this income level to an absolute minimum. Due to this, most people who hold jobs will, at best, rise to the top of their job classifications.

When you run your business, you can earn as much money as your ambition, talents, and energy levels will allow. And in theory, you can even make an entirely new industry. Plus the fact that you are at the forefront, will almost promise an unusually high income.

Joseph Scott Audia on the benefits of investment funds

The characteristics of an investment fund are also imitated in its strengths. These are the benefits that define this type of investment product:

  • It is a liquid investment

With an investment fund you can get your money back whenever you wish. This makes them very liquid investments. This liquidity is one of the risks of investing.  Imagine you invest your money in a house but you need that money back. It will take quite a few months to get it from the time you put the house on the market until the transaction is done. With a fund you can get the money almost right away. The process is very easy. At the end of the day, the value of each share will be computed and the redemption order given. In just a few days, you will have the money in your account.

  • Flexibility

By investing in diverse types of assets, the funds can be adapted to the requirements of all types of investors with various investment profiles: moderate, conservative, risky, focused in particular themes and sectors.

  • They are managed by professionals

Behind every mutual fund there is a team of managers who are investment professionals and who watch over your investments. This means that your money is in the hands of experts.

  • They are transparent

If there is one product where you can methodically analyze its performance, it is investment funds. At first, you can clearly see how the fund has performed against its standard or reference index. Information on how it compares to other similar funds is also simple to find. Secondly, there are lots of ratios and indicators that calculate the performance of the fund, both the relationship between risk and return, and the value provided by the manager.

Joseph Scott Audia suggest that taxation is one of the great benefits of investment funds: funds are a product that allows tax deferral. The key to this tax advantage is that transfers between funds are exempt from personal income tax. If you move your money from one fund to another you will not have to pay taxes when you file your income tax return for the accumulated gains. This will permit you to take better advantage of compound interest as you only pay taxes at the end.
