“The idea of pooling money together for the purpose of investing started in Europe in the mid-1800s.

It was called the Massachusetts Investor?s Trust. It grew from $50,000 in assets in 1924 to $392,000 one year later with approximately 200 shareholders. Today there are over 10000 in mutual funds in the US today totaling around $7 trillion dollars with approximately 83 million investors, according to Dustin Woodard at About.
