What are investment funds?

Mutual funds are among the most popular ways to invest savings. They are established and managed by mutual fund companies or foreign investment companies, which have specialised staff and extensive experience on the capital market. Thanks to this they can professionally manage the entrusted money. The objective of mutual funds is to multiply the assets they are entrusted with as effectively as possible, maintaining a specified safety level.

Funds invest on money, capital, raw material, commodity, futures, FX and many other markets. Investment decisions are made by experienced specialists who continuously monitor markets to make changes to the fund's investment structure at the right time to increase its profits. However, in doing that, they have to strictly follow rules, which define, in which instruments and how much they can invest.

These principles are described in the information or issue prospectus, which is obligatorily published by every fund on the website of the TFI, which manages it. It is a good idea to read these documents before investing in a specific fund, to be fully aware of the risk related to the fund and the fund's potential to generate profit.

It must be remembered that investments in funds bear investment risk – their value may grow or fall, including the possibility of losing part of the invested money. Historical performance of funds is not a guarantee of attaining same results in the future.

Investment Fund is an entity having legal personality and operating on the basis of the Act of 27 May 2004 on investment funds, conducting, exclusively, operations involving investing cash collected publicly or not publicly in securities and other property rights provided for in the Act.

In return for payments into the fund investors receive participation units or investment certificates. Their number shows proportional share held by the investor in the investment fund assets. In specified time intervals the fund determines the value of participation units i.e. calculates „net value of fund's assets" assigned to a single participation unit. For this purpose, the fund determines the value of its investment portfolio and divides it by the number of participation units allocated to all participants. The value of participation unit and investment certificate may change on each valuation day.  

The following risks result from investing in investment funds:

  • Sector risk,
  • Credit risk,
  • Short-term price volatility risk,
