Diversification of funds is one of the crucial reason while people prefer Mutual fund over other investment instrument. Diversification is a way through which one can reduce his exposure to risk. In Mutual fund the fund manager invest the funds in different stocks and different sectors. This reduces the risk in investment as even if a particular stock or sector is underperforming there are other stocks and sectors which can provide stability to the fund. Although the risk in the investment does not becomes nil by diversification but the exposures become quite low than the level of exposure which an individual faces while he invest in a particular stock or sector.
