- Mutual Fund
A Mutual fund is a vehicle for pooling public funds for investment in a portfolio of securities managed by a fund manager
The most common types of mutual fund are as follows:
- Conventional/Open Ended Fund
An open ended fund is a mutual fund which can be subscribed to or redeemed by an investor on each bourse trading day, depending on the purpose of investment, the time horizon and investor risk profile.
Open-ended funds consist of the following:
- Money Market Mutual Fund
A mutual fund that invests 100% of its portfolio in money-market instruments with maturities less than 1 (one) year.
- Fixed Income Mutual Fund
A mutual fund that invests at least 80% (eighty percent) of its portfolio in fixed income instruments.
- Balanced Fund
A mutual fund that invests in equities, fixed income instruments and money market instruments, with investments in equities and fixed-income instruments being mandatory and each investment category accounting for not more than 79% (seventy-nine percent) of its total portfolio.

In order to provide protection for the initial investment, the Fund Manager of a Protected Mutual Fund invests part of its portfolio in investment-grade fixed income instruments so that the value of these instruments at maturity date will at least be able to cover the protected amount.
- Guaranteed Fund
A Mutual Fund that provides security through a guarantee that the investor will at least receive an amount equal to the initial investment at maturity date as long as the requirements are met. Such security is provided through the appointment of a Guarantor, which is an institution that underwrites the investment and has obtained a license from the regulator.

- Mutual Fund Transaction Facilities
In order to further enhance our services to investors, Bank Mandiri provides additional facilities for mutual fund transactions, including:
- Mutual Fund Installment Plan
Investors can avail of our Installment Plan to make regular purchases of additional shares in Mutual Funds. This facility allows investors to purchase top ups from time to time without having to visit a Mandiri branch. The investor’s bank account is automatically debited (on bourse trading days) in accordance with the size and date of the subscription, as determined by the investor.
This facility provides a very useful tool for financial planning whereby future financial needs or objectives can be fulfilled by making regular investments.
- Installment Plan Advantages
1. Provides a means to start investing early, encourages disciplined investment, and can be used as a way of investing to cover the future education of one’s children through the purchase of a QQ installment plan.
2. Provides greater convenience in conducting Mutual Fund transactions as the customer only has to visit a Bank Mandiri branch once for the initial transaction, with subsequent top-up transactions being conducted automatically by the Bank’s system.
3. Provides flexibility whereby the investor can determine the amount of his or her regular monthly investments and the date of debiting. It also provides a wide range of investment choices so that the investor can determine his or her asset allocations so as to diversify investment risk.
4. Provides a means to implement the concept of "dollar cost averaging," whereby the investor can minimize risk due to fluctuations in the NAV/unit. Through the Bank Mandiri installment plan, the average investment purchase price will be better compared to once-off purchases as there is no way of knowing for sure whether current market conditions are above or below average.
