An equity fund is a mutual fund that invests principally in stocks. It can be actively or passively (index fund) managed. Equity funds are also known as stock funds.
Stock mutual funds are principally categorized according to company size, the investment style of the holdings in the portfolio and geography.
Another great feature of equity funds is the sheer number of funds available. In the mutual fund arena as a whole, equity funds are the most popular type of mutual funds, and as of 2017, there were more than 9,350 mutual funds available in the market.
Whether it’s a particular market sector (technology, financial, pharmaceutical), a specific stock exchange (such as the New York Stock Exchange or Nasdaq), foreign or domestic markets, income or growth stocks, high or low risk, or a specific interest group (political, religious, brand), there are equity funds of every type and characteristic available to match every risk profile and investment objective that investors may have.
