Mutual Funds

Effortlessly invest in your retirement.

Mutual funds allow you to invest alongside other like-minded people. Run by professional portfolio managers, each fund varies in levels of risk and reward based on which type of mutual fund you choose.

Explore the key benefits of mutual funds or contact an Allstate financial professional to learn more.

  • Allows for diversification
    Buying a varied portfolio is expensive—pooling your money with others lets you spread your money across investments to potentially decrease your risk

  • Saves you time and energy
    Your investment is professionally managed

  • Lets you decide your risk
    With many types of funds, you can choose if you want a lower or higher-risk investment

  • Maintains access to your money
    Unlike retirement accounts or other savings vehicles that may charge a penalty for early withdrawals, mutual funds are considered more liquid assets making the funds more convenient to access

Learn about the four types of mutual funds.

  • 1. Money market mutual funds
    This low-risk, low-return fund is often used as an emergency account because it's easy to withdraw money

  • 2. Bond mutual funds
    Designed to generate income and add stability, this fund can be useful for achieving specific goals

  • 3. Stock mutual funds
    Typically invests in common stocks, which can be volatile in the short-run, but has potential for bigger growth in the long run

  • 4. Target date mutual funds
    Allocates your assets with a specific retirement date in mind — as your target nears, it shifts to invest more conservatively to help protect your savings

It's your money. Invest it how you want.

Allstate works with more than 20 fund families to give you a wide variety of mutual fund options.
