An investment fund is a form of joint investment, which consists in depositing cash (in more complex solutions, it is also possible to make payments in the form of, for example, securities), paid by participants of a given fund.
Participants can be both individuals (natural persons) and legal persons (mainly enterprises and institutions, organizations, cities) and entities and organizational units that do not have legal personality.
Investment funds can be divided according to the area of investment:
Through the prism of the type of securities purchased - stock, bond and cash market
From the perspective of the issuers' locations - the domestic market, markets of individual continents, the global market
From the perspective of issuers' features - including industry
Over the past few years, cryptocurrency funds have become extremely popular. Many surveys (including analysis prepared by Crypto Fund Research) show that since 2017 there has been a constant trend, that one in five of the emerging hedge funds were cryptocurrency funds. Statistics of this type may be somewhat surprising, especially in the face of the bear market in 2018 and an uncertain future. It shows, however, that institutional investors remain optimistic about the market in the long term.
