If you want to invest in stocks, you have three possibilities:
- Buying equities directly
- Investing passively
- Investing in a mutual fund managed by a fund manager
Buying equities directly
It is also possible to invest in mutual funds which invest in securities with some specific characteristics, for instance a low P/E ratio or a high dividend yield.
Investing in a mutual fund managed by a fund manager
As you are going to see in our charts and documents, some investors have been able to obtain outstanding results for very long periods of time. Most of them are value investors, they have similar backgrounds and invest their own money in their mutual funds. If you trust someone to invest for you, I am sure you will feel more confident if you know that he is going to do as much as possible to keep your and his/her money safe.
