Mutual Funds

Mutual funds which are professionally prepared maintain bundles of securities and pool together various combinations of risk and return in order to offer investors a wide range of investment opportunities.

Mutual funds fall into two broad categories: A-Type and B-Type.:

A-Type Mutual Funds: A-Type funds are required to have at least 25% of their portfolio value invested in equities which are traded on the BIST on a monthly weighted average.

B-Type Mutual Funds: B-Type funds are not subject to restrictions on portfolio composition. They tend to be invested heavily in fixed-income securities, with portfolios varying primarily in their particular mix of terms to maturity.
