Equity funds are managed funds which invest primarily in companies. Managed funds, also known as unit trusts, allow investors to pool their money with others, thus enabling them to invest in assets and markets that may be difficult to access individually. Managed funds are run by investment professionals and come in a variety of forms including fixed interest, property and equity funds or a combination of these.
You can choose equity funds that invest in Australian shares, international shares or a combination of both. If you decide to invest in Australian equity funds, you could opt for managed funds that mirror the S&P/ASX All Ordinaries Index (a passive or index fund) or one where the fund manager seeks to outperform the index. Growth equity funds are those where the fund manager selects shares they believe are likely to outperform the market.
