Mutual funds come in various flavors as I am sure you’d already know by now.

While there are funds that are safe and low risk, there are ones that are high risk also. Certain people wish to take risk and get much higher returns.

One strategy used by people wishing to get very high returns is to invest for a long duration – that reduces exposure to volatility.
