Furthermore, are there any risks when investing in Mutual Funds? There are several risks we need to be aware of:

  1. The risk of reduced NAV, which occurs due to economic or political conditions that affect the decline in asset prices in the mutual fund portfolio
  2. Liquidity risk, which is the difficulty for an Investment Manager if most of the unit holders make redemptions on the units they hold
  3. Default risk, where the risk can occur if the insurance company that insures the Mutual Fund's assets does not immediately pay compensation.

In essence, all risks that could potentially occur in Mutual Funds can be mitigated if we carry out good investment planning and management.

In addition, the right diversification principle is also needed to minimize risk. If one company experiences a loss, but you still have allocations to other companies that are profitable, of course it will not reduce your portfolio.
