Finance: What is Distribution?

Mutual funds are designed to to be investor portfolios that either reinvest capital gains, dividends, and interest payments, or make a distribution to investors in the form of cash payment or additional prorated shares. The distribution payments are made on a regular basis, as per the fund’s design, and can be monthly, quarterly, bi-annually or annually. Income-based funds, such as bond or equity dividend funds, are preferred by investors on a fixed income who are also retired, as they rely on the regularly scheduled payment streams.
