One of the simplest ways to invest is through a fund. Instead of buying lots of individual shares, bonds or other investments yourself, when you invest in a fund your money is looked after by an expert fund manager. Your money is pooled together with that of other investors and then used to buy a wide range of different investments that are managed by the fund manager.
