Seasoned retirement and financial strategist, Mark Kinney, discusses the advantages and disadvantages investing in individual stocks and mutual funds.

Lee, Massachusetts—July 14, 2016—Founding partner of Toole, Kinney & Company, Inc., Mark Kinney, CFP®, published a new article entitled, “Stocks vs. Mutual Funds?” In the article, he encourages readers to understand the different investment strategies that stocks and mutual funds require so that they can make more informed financial decisions before committing capital.

Mark KinneyMark writes, “Distributing risk across a variety of markets and industries is one of the great strengths of mutual fund investing. By utilizing a fund, an investor can immediately diversify their investment exposure regardless of dollar amount. Additionally, mutual funds can be considered a form of passive investment. Rather than being saddled with the burden of monitoring each individual security in your portfolio, you’re able to transfer that responsibility to the fund manager… in exchange for a small fee of course. That being said, mutual funds are ideal for beginning investors looking to get their feet wet or for those who would like to take a more ‘hands-off’ approach to investing.”
