With more than 10,000 mutual funds the options are endless. A financial advisor proves to be helpful through means of education. They help you become a wise investor and understand the risks and benefits that come along with each investment, all the while fitting your investment style.
Equity funds can produce a high return over a long-term period of time. Dividends are also another factor to consider here, as dividends can produce additional income, which can also be used to purchase even more shares. An example of an equity fund would be one that invests in companies that are growing rapidly by buying shares. This is also known as a growth fund.
Fixed-income funds are great if you are looking for a more stable income, as they have less of a tendency to fluctuate.
Segregated funds are long-term investments that can be purchased from life insurance companies with death benefit and maturity guarantees in increments of 5, 10, 15 years, etc. Investing in these insurance contracts are an investment within an investment (i.e. investing in a mutual fund and insuring it for a a period of 5 years or more). They help to protect you by promising to return at least 75% to 100% of your principal investment amount upon the maturity date of the contract or the death of the investor.
