Folio

A portfolio of stocks and other securities that an investor may buy or sell as a single unit, much like a mutual fund. Unlike a mutual fund, however, the investor may add or subtract securities from the portfolio at his/her discretion for a flat monthly or annual fee to the brokerage providing the folio. This gives the investor substantial control over the portfolio, especially in its tax consequences, while still providing the main advantage of a mutual fund, namely disbursing risk over a wide variety of securities.

folio

A personalized collection of stocks an investor can assemble or purchase as a preselected basket. Investors can sell and replace individual stocks in a folio, generally as often as desired, for a single monthly or annual fee. Choosing when to replace stocks allows an investor substantial control over the tax consequences of owning folios compared to owning mutual funds.
