What is the difference between investor funds and class d funds?
It's actually "investment grade" funds versus "Class D" funds. But anyway... Both are kinda like mutual funds--a lot of securities grouped together and sold in shares. Unlike mutual funds, which are comprised of stocks, bond funds are comprised of bonds. The difference is the quality of the bonds in the fund. Investment-grade funds hold nice, safe, well-regarded, boring securities that just sit there, pay interest and don't worry the fund manager too much. Class D fund deal in Class D debentures--D stands for Default. These things are super speculative, super risky and pay large returns if they succeed. You can play in these and make a lot of money quick; you can also play in these and lose your shirt quick. If you're going to invest in Class D funds, you need another shirt--some stable mutual funds, Treasuries, investment-grade bond funds, SOMETHING that you won't lose everything you have in. Also be ready to get out of the Class D fund at a moment's notice.

Difference between the Dividend and Grow . Equity funds usually offer three options for investors to choose from - the Dividend Payout option, the Dividend Re-investment op…tion and the Growth option. A few funds have also started to offer a Bonus option. These options differ only in their method of distribution of returns.. When you choose the dividend option, you get to partially cash in on the returns earned by the fund from time to time, through the dividends it declares. When you choose the growth option, the returns earned by the fund are retained and reflect as an appreciation in the fund's Net Asset Value (NAV).. Please note that the dividend does not in any way, add to your returns from the fund. The Dividend Re-investment option authorises the fund to plough back the dividends declared into the fund at the prevailing NAV, fetching you more units. In terms of its effect on your returns from the fund, the Dividend Re-investment option is no different from the Growth option.. The Dividend Re-investment option is the superior option for investors who want the tax efficiency of the dividend option and are also willing to remain invested in equities through its ups and downs. If they need liquidity, such investors can liquidate a part of their holdings at NAV.. To illustrate how these options work, let us suppose you invested Rs.1000 in a fund at an NAV of Rs.10 per unit, fetching you 100 units. Six months later, because of an appreciation in the fund's portfolio, the value of the units you hold has grown to Rs 1,200. In the Dividend option, the fund may declare a dividend of Rs 2 per unit and pay out Rs 200. The value of your residual holdings in the fund would be Rs 1000.. In the Growth Option, you would not receive any payout, but the value of your holdings would be Rs 1,200 at the end of six months, as the value of the100 units you hold would have grown from Rs 10 to Rs 12 per unit. In the Dividend Re-investment option, the Rs 200 declared as dividends would be reinvested in the fund at the prevailing ex-dividend NAV, and you would be left with 120 units worth Rs.10 each.. Your investment value at Rs 1,200, would be the same as in the Growth option. The Dividend option (whether Reinvestment or Payout) is the more tax- efficient way of receiving your returns from an equity fund.. The dividends declared by an equity fund (funds with over 50 per cent equity exposure) are exempt from distribution tax and are also tax-free in the hands of an investor. But any returns that you earn on the fund by way of appreciation in NAV, is subject to capital gains tax.. Capital gains are taxed at 10 per cent if you hold the fund for less than a year; but are exempt if you hold for over one year. In the above example, if you opted for Dividend Payout, you would have no tax liability at the end of the six-month period. The same would hold good of the Dividend Re-investment option.. However, if you sell your units in the Growth option at the end of the six-month period, you would have to pay short term capital gains tax of 10 per cent on the Rs.200 you earned by way of appreciation on the Growth Option NAV.. Tax reasons apart, choosing the Dividend Option may also confer other advantages for conservative investors. Equity funds declare dividends only from the profits booked on the holdings in their portfolio. They have tended to pay out liberal dividends when the stock markets are in a buoyant phase and refrain from payouts when the markets are in a bearish phase. Dividend payouts thus offer you the opportunity to cash in partially on any returns that the fund has made, after a sharp run-up in stock prices.. Dividend payouts also help you re-balance your equity holdings when the markets are buoyant, guarding you to an extent against a decline in values. The flip side in opting for the Dividend Option is that they could result in an opportunity loss in a rising market.. In the above example, if the NAV of the fund climbed from Rs 12 to Rs 15 per unit after the dividend declaration, investors who opted for Dividend Payout would have suffered an opportunity loss on the Rs 200 that they have pulled out of the fund by way of dividend.. Their appreciation would be restricted to the Rs 1,000 they have invested in the fund. In contrast, investors who have opted for the Growth and Dividend Re-investment option would have earned an appreciation on the entire sum of Rs 1,200 that they retained in the fund.

Investing takes many forms, from simple to complex, safe to risky. If you have money you want to put to work, you should first prepare by researching the many different strate…gies available. For investors with a large amount of capital, hedge funds and venture capital are two popular options. Hedge Fund A hedge fund is a pool of investment capital that a manager invests on shareholders' behalf. In this basic operation, a hedge fund is similar to a mutual fund, but with a crucial difference: the complete discretion it gives the fund manager to invest where and how he chooses. This means hedge funds can hold any and all investment types, from the safest U.S. Treasury bond to the riskiest junk bonds, stock options and futures contracts. Entrance Fee Hedge funds have much higher minimum investments than ordinary mutual funds and place greater restrictions on withdrawals. Some hedge funds require you to stay invested a minimum of a year or more to avoid a run on the fund that could force it to liquidate its investments. Hedge funds tend to be riskier than mutual funds, and it can be difficult to ascertain how much their holdings are worth. Because hedge funds are not regulated by the SEC, potential investors must thoroughly research the performance and management before entrusting their money to a hedge-fund manager. Venture Capital A venture fund takes a more active role in its investments. It allows investors -- individuals as well as institutions -- to invest money in new companies and enterprises. The fund pools money from its partners and buys a share in companies that do not yet have the finances or history to successfully offer shares on the public stock exchanges. In exchange, the venture fund earns a share of the company's future earnings, if any, and its partners divide the proceeds according to their participation in the fund. Venture Fund Risk and Return Venture funds represent a high-risk, high-return investment for their partners. Many companies in which a venture fund invests do not yet have sales or profits, and some stand for only a concept or invention that has not yet been brought to market. Members of a venture fund may take an active role in the operation of the new company, taking seats on its board of directors or providing active advice and guidance. Once the company makes an initial public offering, the venture fund sells its stake and divides the proceeds to its own partners.

A Contra Fund is another type of Equity Mutual fund that has a contrarian view to investment which is supposed to be the opposite of the view that regular MF's take.
