index investing


Purchasing shares of an index fund. Index investing requires less research because it is an investment in all of the securities in an index. This is different from investing in mutual funds because mutual funds can be comprised of multiple stocks from different indexes, as opposed to index investing which deals with multiple stocks trading on the same index.
