Investment funds and other collective investment schemes are efficient asset management instruments, with something to offer all sections of the population.
Investment funds are professionally managed investment instruments designed for medium to long-term asset growth. Investment funds are segregated pools of assets, i.e. the fund's assets are legally segregated in favor of investors. Investment funds are not, as a rule, subject to so-called issuer or counterparty risk.
As collective investment schemes, investment funds are much more than a loose collection of individual securities and a form of packaging investments together. One thing all funds have in common is the principle of ongoing management by a fund manager. Under Fund Explorer you can find a list of all mutual funds listed on the Swiss Stock Exchange.
