Investors who do not have enough knowledge, experience and time to directly invest in a market, especially a foreign market, may look to professional investment organizations to entrust their money. Thus, compared to direct investment by individuals, this form of investment offers certain advantages.
It is very difficult for investors who have a small amount of money to spread risks because large projects do not allow them to do so. Therefore, the establishment of an investment fund by gathering small amounts of money into a large sum will help investors with little capital participate in large investment projects. This allows them to obtain profits while minimizing risk on the basis of investment dispersion.
Investment companies are managed by skilled and experienced professionals who were selected and screened carefully. An investment fund with a team of qualified managers able to analyze and specialize in investment fields will have more advantages than non-specialist individuals.
Investing through investment funds will save more costs than individual investments do because professional fund managers have the advantage in accessing projects, and often enjoy preferential transaction costs.
In addition, investment companies is not only a captial contributor to businesses but also a provider of reliable information which can help evaluate the effectiveness and feasibility of investment projects.
