When it comes to investing your hard-earned money, your investment planner is likely to suggest exchange-traded funds and mutual funds as options. Mutual funds and exchange-traded funds have a number of similarities, which can easily confuse a potential investor. The similarities between mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are interesting. They are, however, differentiated by a few main differences. Both types of funds are made up of a range of assets and are a common way for investors to diversify their portfolios. However, there are major variations in how they are managed. Mutual funds are actively controlled, which means that a fund manager makes decisions about how the fund''s assets are allocated. ETFs, on the other hand, are usually passively controlled and based on a particular market index.

What is ETF?

Exchange traded funds are a type of mutual funds. They assist retail investors in developing a comprehensive understanding of the investment options available to them. These are stock exchange-listed, actively managed index funds that contain all the stocks or bonds that have the same net asset value as the underlying index, and ETF mutual funds may be bought and sold in real-time at a price that fluctuates during the day.

What is Mutual fund?

Unlike ETFs, mutual funds cannot be exchanged at any time of day. They''re just bought at the end of the trading day at a determined price. They''re also professionally managed by a professional fund manager who works with a team of analysts to diversify the portfolios by investing in a range of money-making instruments.

Which one is better, ETF OR Mutual Funds? 

If you''re trying to diversify your investment portfolio, both of these options will serve you fruitfully. However, you can select the option which is better based on your timeline, risk appetite, and financial objectives. Liquid investments take priority over long-term investment, for other investors. Although the nature of both these funds is similar, and both offer a diversified investment portfolio, a healthy and well-balanced combination of ETFs and mutual funds can be highly beneficial to your investment portfolio. However, before you make a decision, make sure you understand how all of these funds operate, determine the market risks you''re willing to take, and seek advice from a specialist if possible, to ensure you''''re making the best investment decision for you.
