commingled fund

(redirected from Commingled Funds)

Commingled Fund

1. A mutual fund in which money from several customers is pooled together to reduce risk and cost. Any fund investing a large amount of money is subject to a lower percentage of brokerage fees, and large accounts usually have smaller administrative costs than individual accounts. They also benefit from economies of scale, mitigating risk. However, capital gains in a commingled fund are distributed equally among investors, usually resulting in a smaller return.

2. A normally illegal practice in which a broker mingles his own funds with those of his/her client, making it difficult to distinguish to whom to give returns.
