In general, all the MFs invest in commodities, equities, money market instruments as well as government and corporate debt. All the types of mutual funds have a predefined investment goal. They track the asset class in which the investors invest them. This is the reason the returns, as well as the risks in mutual funds investments, vary as they depend on the basic nature and pattern of the fund. The performance of the asset class is also a big matter of determining the return and the risk.
