What is a fund?
In a fund from many investors is pooled and invested. As a hedge against potential risks, the money is invested in a broad spread – in other words, in a wide range of individual securities. The fund's assets are managed by investment specialists who aim to make a profit.
When you put money into investment funds, you are acquiring units of an equivalent value that are part of the total assets of a fund. You can sell your fund units at the current market value at any time or buy more to add to them.
Investing in funds is perfectly straightforward. All you need is a custody account or a fund account. In order to help you find the right investment solution from the wide range of UBS funds, we'd be happy to arrange a comprehensive advisory consultation with you.
