Many people get confused about how mutual funds work, others think Apiary Fund is a mutual fund, but there are some big differences between the Apiary Fund and the traditional mutual fund.



Difference #1

A mutual fund is a business that solicits your money, pools it with thousands of other people’s money, and invests it for you.

The Apiary Fund is a business that teaches you how to invest, then gives you an opportunity to invest the fund's money.

Difference #2

When you invest your money into a mutual fund, all of your investment is at risk of loss during market corrections and bad investment decisions.  

When you manage money for Apiary, none of your money is in the market so your investment money stays safe from market corrections and bad investment decisions.

Difference #3

Mutual funds take a fee for managing your money, so whether they make a profit or not, they get paid first and if there is any left over after all their expenses they will share the profits with you in the form of a dividend.

At Apiary Fund, when you make a profit you get paid first, and anything left over is used by the business to create new funds and new opportunities for new investors like you.

Below are some links for some more information about what makes the Apiary Fund different from other investment funds:

The challenge with how mutual funds work is that they were designed to benefit the business – which is not news to anyone.  This is how the industry has worked for many decades!  But what is news is that Apiary Fund has developed a better way to benefit from moves in the market – a way that uses other people’s money, does not put your money at risk and still gives you an opportunity to profit from gains in the market.

Happy Trading!
