Mutual funds raise money from shareholders and then invest in groups of assets such as stocks or bonds. They have grown increasingly popular in the last 30 years because they provide an investment option that’s diverse, affordable, and liquid. The mutual fund industry, which offers many rewarding career paths, has grown steadily since 1997, but it remains a relatively small sector of the financial industry.
