    Hey there Thank u so much for the Info.

    It's important to understand that each mutual fund has different risks and rewards. In general, the higher the potential return, the higher the risk of loss. Although some funds are less risky than others, all funds have some level of risk - it's never possible to diversify away all risk. This is a fact for all investments.

    Each fund has a predetermined investment objective that tailors the fund's assets, regions of investments and investment strategies. At the fundamental level, there are three varieties of mutual funds:
    1) Equity funds (stocks)
    2) Fixed-income funds (bonds)
    3) Money market funds
    4) Open Ended Fund
