governments and corporations, pay fixed coupons. Since these instruments generally pay fixed
coupons, they are less risky compared to stocks or equity funds. The objective of Bond Funds
is to preserve capital while producing a moderate income over the medium to long-term. The
interest payments of these bonds are reinvested into the fund, allowing a compounding effect
on the performance and allowing your money to work for you.
• Equity Funds
These funds are invested in stocks or the equities market. They have a tendency to be more volatile,
with valuations changing in line with company developments and market events and expectations.
Equity funds aim to achieve capital growth over a long period of time.
• Balanced Funds
Balanced funds are invested in a combination of equities and bonds. These are usually referred to as
asset allocation funds given that the fund can invest in both stocks and bonds while employing
active management between asset classes to achieve the objective of the fund. The risk-return
characteristics of this type of fund, fall between Equity Funds and Fixed-Income Funds.
