What are Equity Funds?

An equity fund is a fund that invests primarily in stocks. The objective of an equity fund is generally to seek long-term capital appreciation and/or income from stocks. These funds may focus on certain sectors of the market or may have a specific investment style, such as investing in value or growth stocks.
