Mutual fund is a financial intermediary which allows a group of investors to pool in their money with a predetermined investment objective. A qualified fund manager is appointed, who is responsible for investing the pooled money into specific securities and asset classes (usually stocks or bonds).
When you invest in a mutual fund, you buy a share (or portion) of the mutual fund.

Types of Mutual Funds
Equity funds aim to provide capital growth by investing in the shares of individual companies. Any dividends received by the fund can be reinvested by the fund manager to provide further growth or paid to investors. Both risk and returns are high but equity funds could be a good investment if you have a long-term perspective and can stay invested for at least five years.
Debt or Income Funds
The aim of debt or income funds is to provide you with a steady income. These funds generally invest in securities such as bonds, corporate debentures, government securities (gilts) and money market instruments. Opportunities for capital appreciation are limited.
The aim of balanced funds is to provide both growth and regular income as such schemes invest both in equities and fixed income securities in the proportion indicated in their offer documents. The investor may wish to balance his risk between various sectors such as asset size, income or growth. Therefore the fund is a balance between various attributes desired, however, NAVs of such funds are likely to be less volatile compared to pure equity funds.
Liquid funds are a safe place to park your money; it is an appealing alternative to bank deposits because they aim to provide liquidity, capital preservation and slightly higher interest rates than bank accounts. Returns on these funds fluctuate much less compared to other funds as the fund manager invests in cash assets such as treasury bills, certificates of deposit and commercial paper.
Index funds are passively managed funds i.e. the fund manager attempts to mirror the performance of a benchmark index like the BSE Sensex or the S&P CNX Nifty, by being invested in the same stocks. NAVs of such schemes would rise or fall in accordance with the rise or fall in the index.
