How do I start investing in funds?

You can easily start investing on OP-mobile or the op.fi service by making a one-off investment or through monthly investment. You can change your investment amount, put your investing on hold, switch to another fund or sell your investments. The money will be transferred to your account within 1–2 banking days. 

Is investing in funds worth it?

Investing in funds is the best way to save and invest money for someone who has no time or interest in following stock market prices or analysing stocks. Money you save in a bank account does not generate a profit and is devalued over time by inflation.

In a fund, your money is invested in fixed-term and stock markets so that you can expect a long-term return on your investment. Learn more about different funds and their expected returns and choose the best funds for you to save and invest in.

How do index funds differ from other mutual funds? 

Index funds allow you to pursue the average rate of return of the stock exchange, minus fees. Index funds try to match the rate of return of the index they follow, whereas actively managed funds seek a better rate of return than the index. Thanks to low fees, the average rate of return of index funds is better than in actively managed funds. Index funds usually have a lower administration fee than a typical actively managed fund.
