That said, the world's biggest companies - the Facebooks , the Alphabets , the Amazons - have been high-growth companies, so the reward is potentially limitless if you can find the right company. If you're not quite up for spending the time and effort analyzing individual stocks, then a stock fund - either an ETF or a mutual fund - can be a great option.
But you'll have a diversified and safer set of companies than if you own just a few individual stocks. A stock fund is an excellent choice for an investor who wants to be more aggressive but doesn't have the time or desire to make investing a full-time hobby.
And by buying a stock fund, you'll get the weighted average return of all the companies in the fund, so the fund will generally be less volatile than if you had held just a few stocks.

At the end of the bond's term, the issuer repays the principal amount of the bond, and the bond is redeemed. A bond can be one of the safer investments, and bonds become even safer as part of a fund. Because a fund might own hundreds of bond types, across many different issuers, it diversifies its holdings and lessens the impact on the portfolio of any one bond defaulting.
Bonds are considered relatively safe, relative to stocks, but not all issuers are the same. Government issuers, especially the federal government, are considered quite safe, while the riskiness of corporate issuers can range from slightly less so to much more risky.
