Index mutual funds

Index mutual funds are efficient, low-cost ways to gain exposure to markets. Unlike active mutual funds, which seek to outperform a benchmark, index mutual funds seek to match the performance of a benchmark.

Benefits of index mutual funds

1Efficient access– There’s an index, and an index fund, for almost every market exposure and investment strategy you can possibly need. More choice gives investors flexibility to seek the investment outcomes they want.


2Low cost– When you combine the impact of lower fees and tax efficiency, the potential savings gained by using an index fund can add up. Index mutual funds cost about 1/4 as much as comparable active mutual funds.1


3Competitive performance– Index funds aim to match, rather than beat their benchmarks, minus costs. Only 18% of active managers outperformed their benchmarks over the past five years.2
