These are funds which invest in both shares and fixed-income bonds. Maximum limits are usually prescribed on trading shares or bonds. Funds offer various strategies depending on the investor’s risk capacity. The proportion of shares in a fund with a growth strategy is therefore very high, while a fund employing a defensive strategy will invest the majority of its assets in fixed-income bonds. Balanced strategies strike a middle course between these two strategies. In these funds, the proportions of shares and bonds are about the same. May also be referred to as portfolio funds or investment strategy funds depending on the provider.
