Principal-Protection Fund

(redirected from Principal Protection Fund)

Principal-Protection Fund

A mutual fund that invests predominately or exclusively in securities with principal protection, meaning holders are guaranteed to receive back at least what they originally invested. This results in a low risk mutual fund. However, principal-protection funds often have relatively low returns and, if the fund invests in a disproportionate number of short-term securities, can lead to higher capital gains taxes.
