What Is an Index Fund?

Index funds are mutual funds that imitate the composition of a particular stock market index. Index funds are hence known as passively managed mutual funds. The reason being, fund managers cannot decide which stocks will move in and out and how much of the fund’s money will be used to purchase which stock. 

The fund manager is not actively involved in fund management as such funds are designed to mimic an index.

Index funds do not aim to outperform the benchmark index but try to stay in line with the index.
