Definition of Focused fund:

  1. Mutual funds are often marketed as a good way to diversify a portfolio of investments.

This diversification allows an investor to gain access to the equity risk premium while minimizing risk and volatility.

Focused funds tend to hold positions in roughly 20-30 companies or less, unlike many funds which hold positions in well more than 100 companies.

  3. A mutual fund that holds large positions in fewer than 30 stocks or in fewer than three sectors. Compare to a Diversified Fund.
