Blend Fund

(redirected from Hybrid Fund)

Blend Fund

A mutual fund that invests in some combination of value stocks and growth stocks. That is, a blend fund attempts to hedge its risk by investing in stocks that are considered to be generally stable while at the same time attempting a high return by investing in high risk, usually new, stocks. A blend fund may invest in small cap, medium cap, or large cap companies, or some combination of the three. A blend fund is also called a hybrid fund and became relatively common because of promotion by Morningstar, Inc. See also: Dual-Purpose Fund.
