Holding

The term holding applies to both the fund itself, in terms of what securities and assets it currently holds; as well as investors in the fund in terms of the amount of units/shares that they hold in the fund. An investor in the fund will have their holding details recorded at a transfer agent or registrar, or the fund provider itself. Funds will often report their total holdings, as well as details about their holdings e.g. sector weightings, country weightings, top 10 holdings etc in their regular reports to investors.

Synonyms: Holdings, Assets held, Securities held, Units held
