The mutual funds are the savings of thousands of people as you seek to carry potential profitability. How does it work? The money of all the participants is invested -in charge of financial experts- in stocks, bonds and / or certificates of deposit in the stock market.

What assets should you invest in?
“That is the typical question. One has to see what their investment horizon is and see what I invest for and when I want to get as a result.

What must be taken into account is that I have to generate a higher return on inflation, otherwise I am losing value in my investments, “he added.
