A mutual fund (or unit trust) is an investment vehicle that pools the money of many individuals to invest in stocks, bonds, money market securities, real estate or some combination of these.
Think of a mutual fund like a basket of investments. When you purchase a share in a mutual fund you are buying one share of this basket and therefore have a stake in one small fraction of all the investments in that fund.
The fund manager professionally manages the funds and spreads it on stocks, money markets, bonds and real estate. Instead of investing in only one investment instrument they diversify it based on the policy of the fund manager.
