10 Differences between Mutual Funds (MFs) and Unit Investment Trust Funds (UITFs)


Thursday, July 11, 2013

A lot of people ask me to explain the difference between mutual funds (MFs) and unit investment trust funds (UITFs). And so, to get this questions answered simply and briefly, I've decided to make an article. 

Remember an article I made about earning millions through investing? 

10 Differences between Mutual Funds (MFs) and Unit Investment Trust Funds (UITFs)
Investing in MFs & UITFs means your money works for you. 

Fundamentally speaking, my friend, MFs and UITFs are actually similar in four ways. You can invest in even both of them. The most important thing is that you start now and do not commit money mistakes: 

- Both investment vehicles are pooled investments. 
Basically, your money is collected along with the money of thousands of investors. The collected money is then invested in a diversified portfolio consisting of bonds, stocks and others. 

- Both MFs and UITFs are managed by "professionals". 
If you decide to invest in either or in both, you don't have to analyze the market trend full-time. You'll be essentially paying someone else to do it for you. 

- Both MFs and UITFs are risky, though. 
The past performance of the funds does not guarantee future returns. 



- Then again, both have been proven to yield greater returns compared to your savings accounts and time deposits. 
I'm talking about a range of 4% to 20% annually, as compared to your cash deposits yielding .75% interest annually.
