Mutual Fund Wholesalers

Mutual Fund Wholesalers Discuss New Funds

A mutual fund is an investment strategy that allows investors to purchase a collection of stocks, bonds, or other securities. Funds are sold to the public through the sale of shares representing an ownership interest. Wholesalers market mutual funds to registered investment advisors, financial planners, family offices, broker/dealers, consultants, insurance companies, and other institutional clients—who then sell them to the public.
