Mutual Funds Distribution

A mutual fund is a Collective Investment Scheme (CIS) that pools money from a number of investors. The money is managed by an Asset Management Company (AMC) licensed by the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP). The mutual fund raises money by selling its own shares, also known as “Units” to its investors. The money is used to purchase a portfolio of stocks, bonds, short-term money-market instruments, other securities or assets, or some combination of these investments. Each unit represents ownership in the fund and gives the investor a proportional right to dividends and capital gains the fund earns on its investments, based on the number of units they own. Majority of the income earned by the mutual fund’s portfolio is distributed among the investors. For the stakeholder’s investment protection, the regulators put in place a Trustee who provides holding services and has administrative powers for managing the property, assets, and money of the mutual fund. The trustee can be an individual person, a company or a bank appointed with the approval of the SECP. They are trusted to make decisions in the unit holder’s best interest.
